  • Can I assume that in any given example that the average fixed will increase due to lower production and that the total variable cost will decrease proportionally to production?

  • Yes that is true unless there is any specific information given regarding the cost

  • One last question, if the change in per unit cost were to decrease, would the average variable cost decrease or increase?

  • Average variable cost will decrease because average variable cost has got nothing to do with Total Variable cost. It is basically per unit cost of production only
