Unformatted text preview: volume respectively. (each of these is a total cost or TC). 3. Determine the variable component of the cost as follows: Variable Cost (slope of the cost line) = High Vol. Cost Low Vol. Cost High Volume - Low Volume = vc/ unit 4. To calculate the fixed component (TFC or Total Fixed Cost), substitute into the equation. . TC = vc/unit * x + TFC Therefore, TFC = TC - vc/ unit * x Solve for the fixed cost component called TFC TFC = TC - TVC (where vc/unit * x = TVC or total variable cost) where x is either the high volume or low volume and TC is the related high volume cost or low volume cost. It doesnt matter which volume you use as long as you also use the related TC. What we are left with is a TC formula for a mixed cost where we know each of the parameters. Example: TC = $2,000 + $1.35 x...
