The sales price per unit is constant v. The behavior of costs and revenue is linear vi. The quantity of products produced and sold is the same. First attempt is to rearrange the variable and fixed costs as per shown in Figure 1. Figure 1 - Variable and Fixed Cost Variable Cost per unit Unit manufacturing cost: Variable materials \$550 Variable labor \$825 Variable overhead \$420 Variable manufacturing cost /unit \$1795 Unit marketing costs: Variable \$275 Total Variable cost per unit \$2070 [pic] Fixed Cost per unit Unit manufacturing cost: Fixed overhead \$660 Unit marketing costs: Fixed \$770 Fixed cost /unit \$1430 [pic] Information given that company normal manufacturing volume 3000 units and Regular Selling Price \$4350/unit Total fixed cost (3000 units x \$1430) \$4,290,000 Question 1 What is the break-even volume in units? In sales dollars? Solution: Break-even analysis is based on the assumption that all the costs related to the production can be divided into two categories: Variable and Fixed costs.
