The Wildcat Company has provided the following information: Units of Output 30,000 Units 42,000 Units Direct materials $ 180,000 $ 252,000 Workers' wages 1,080,000 1,512,000 Supervisors' salaries 312,000 312,000 Equipment depreciation 151,200 151,200 Maintenance 81,600 110,400 Utilities 384,000 528,000 Total $2,188,800 $2,865,600 Using the high-low method and the information provided above, 21. Identify the linear cost function equation and estimate the total cost at 36,000 units of output a. Variable cost = ($2,865,600 – $2,188,800) / (42,000 – 30,000) = $56.40 Fixed cost = $2,865,600 – $56.40 x 42,000 = $496,800 Cost function is y = $496,800 + $56.40X b. Output level of 36,000 units = $496,800 + $56.40 x 36,000 = = $2,527,200 total cost As part of his job as cost analyst, Max Thompson collected the following information

Unformatted text preview: concerning the operations of the Machining Department: Observation Machine-hours Total Operating Costs January 4,000 $45,000 February 4,600 49,500 March 3,800 45,750 April 4,400 48,000 May 4,500 49,800 22. Use the high-low method to determine the estimating cost function with machine-hours as the cost driver. Slope coefficient = ($49,500 $45,750) / (4,600 3,800) = $4.6875 per machine-hour Constant = $49,500 - ($4.6875 x 4,600) = $27,937.50 Estimating equation = $27,937.50 + $4.6875X 23. If June's estimated machine-hours total 4,200, what are the total estimated costs of the Machining Department? I will tip if you answer these three questions June's estimated costs = $27,937.50 + $4.6875 x 4,200 = $47,625...
