Use copies made as the measure of activity. High low method= 20500-8500/900,000-300000 Variable cost per unit=12000/600000=0.02 \$0.02 will be multiplied by any of the activity level Suppose from september 400000*0.02=\$8000 Total cost=fixed cost+variable cost Total cost for september=10,500 Vaiable cost=\$0.02*400000=\$8000 So the fixed cost would be=total cost-variable cost=10,500-8,000=\$2,500...
