Exercises 3-48 Changing the Cost Formula for a Month to the Cost Formula for a Year

Refer to the information for Fly High Airlines above.

Required:

  1. 1. Develop annual cost formulas for airplane depreciation, fuel, and airplane maintenance.
  2. 2. Using the three annual cost formulas that you developed, predict the cost of each resource in a year with 480,000 airline flight hours.

1.

To determine

Prepare the annual cost formula for airplane depreciation, fuel and airplane maintenance.

High Low Method:

The method in which, high and low points of data are used to classify the mixed cost into fixed and variable cost known as high low method. This is one among the three costs of separation methods.

The cost formula for airplane depreciation is,

Total Cost=Fixed Cost×12 months

Substitute $18,000,000 for fixed cost in the above formula.

Total Cost=$18,000,000×12 months=$216,000,000

The cost formula for fuel is,

Total Cost=Variable Rate×Annual Number Of Airplane Flight Hours

Substitute $10,134 for variable rate in the above formula
