Here are examples to calculate the various types of cost 1. How to calculate VC from TC? You need to derive FC. Look where the output is zero. Then FC = TC because VC is zero when out put is zero. 2. How to calculate Marginal (dollar) cost Marginal dollar cost : MC = change in total cost / change in total output. Output TC ΔTC/ΔQ = MC 0 $12 0 - P 10 205 $85 /10 =$8.5 Q 15 245 40 / 5 = $8.0 R 20 270 25 / 5 = $5.0 S 30 360 90 / 10 = $9.0 3. How to calculate average fixed cost ( AFC ), average variable cost ( AVC ) and average total cost (
