24 Page 202 Cost-Volume Analysis Cost-volume analysis Focuses on the relationship between cost, revenue, and volume of output Fixed Costs (FC) tend to remain constant regardless of output volume Variable Costs (VC) vary directly with volume of output VC = Quantity ( Q ) x variable cost per unit ( v ) Total Cost TC = Q x v Total Revenue (TR) TR = revenue per unit ( R ) x Q
25 Break-Even Point (BEP) BEP The volume of output at which total cost and total revenue are equal Profit ( P ) = TR – TC = R x Q – (FC + v x Q ) = Q(R – v) – FC v R Q BEP - = FC v R FC P Q - + =
The owner of Old-Fashioned Berry Pies, S. Simon, is contemplating adding a new line of pies, which will require leasing new equipment for a month payment of \$6,000. Variable cost would be \$2 per pie, and pies would retail for \$7 each. 26 FCa.b.
