Short Exercises (5-10 min.) S 6-1 Cost A is a variable cost. The cost is constant on a per unit basis and increases in total as volume increases. Cost B is a fixed cost. The cost is constant in total, and decreases on a per unit basis as volume increases. Cost C is mixed. It is not constant in total, and it is not constant on a per unit basis.

(5-10 min.) S 6-3 Total fixed cost = $3.00 / basketball × 12,000 basketballs Total fixed cost = $36,000 Since a volume of 15,000 basketballs is in the same relevant range, the total fixed costs will remain constant at $36,000 Therefore, the new fixed cost per basketball will be: Fixed cost per basketball = Total fixed cost Number of basketballs produced Fixed cost per basketball = $36,000 15,000 Fixed cost per basketball = $2.40 Managerial Accounting 2e Solutions Manual 33 Number of Basketballs produced

(5-10 min.) S 6-4 a. Fixed y = f Where y = total fixed cost f = fixed amount over a period of time (vertical intercept) b. Mixed y = vx + f Where y = total mixed cost v = variable cost per unit of activity (slope) x = volume of activity f = fixed amount over a period of time (vertical intercept) c. Variable y = vx Where y = total variable cost v = variable cost per unit of activity (slope) x = volume of activity Chapter 6 Cost Behavior 34

(5-10 min.) S 6-5 Find the answer to Ritter Razor’s questions by: 1) finding the company’s cost equation, and then 2) using the cost equation to predict total costs at a different volume. First, determine the firm’s cost equation: Total costs = variable component + fixed component y = vx + f $100,000 = $40,000 = f $60,000 = f Also, since: vx = $40,000 when x = 20,000 v (20,000) = $40,000 v = $2.00 per package of razors Therefore, the production cost equation is: y = $2.00x + $60,000 Predict total costs for other volumes in the same relevant range using the cost equation found above: y = ($2.00 per package × 25,000 packages) + $60,000 y = $50,000 + $60,000 y = $110,000 Total production costs are predicted to be $110,000 when 25,000 packages of razors are produced.
