The cost is constant in total, and decreases on a per unit basis as volume increases.Cost C is mixed. It is notconstant in total, and it is not constant on a per unit basis. (10 min.) S 62(510 min.) S 63Total fixed cost=$3.00 / basketball 12,000 basketballsTotal fixed cost=$36,000Since a volume of 15,000 basketballs is in the same relevant range, the total fixed costs will remain constant at $36,000Therefore, the new fixed cost per basketball will be:Fixed cost per basketball=Total fixed costNumber of basketballs producedFixed cost per basketball=$36,00015,000 Fixed cost per basketball=$2.40(510 min.)

S 65Find the answer to Ritter Razors questions by 1) finding the companys cost equation, and then 2) using the cost equation to predict total costs at a differentvolume.First, determine the firms cost equation:Total costs=variable component+fixed componenty=vx+f$100,000=$40,000=f$60,000=fAlso, since:vx=$40,000 when x = 20,000v (20,000)=$40,000v=$2.00 per package of razorsTherefore, the production cost equation is:y = $2.00x + $60,000Predict total costs for other volumes in the same relevant range using the cost equation found above:y=($2.00 per package 25,000 packages) + $60,000y=$50,000 + $60,000y=$110,000Total production costs are predicted to be $110,000 when 25,000 packages of razors are produced.(510 min.)
