2 (ii) At the break-even point, TR = TC, so we set the two equations equal to each other and solve for Q: 40 Q = Q 15Q = 8430 Q = 562 units (iii) Now that we know the number of units at the break-even point, we can substitute into EITHER the TR or TC equation and find the break-even point in dollars: TR = = \$22,480 TC = = \$22,480 In some cases you may be given a question in total sales dollars rather than unit prices. In this case we assume that our output is sold in \$1 increments and proceed. Total revenue (or sales) will be given as \$1 Q, or simply Q. Fixed costs will remain the same. Variable costs are directly related to sales volume (both depend on quantity), so if we take Total Variable Costs Total Sales, this will give us the fraction of every dollar of sales that goes to variable costs or the variable cost per unit. Example 2: The following information is found in the accounting records of Acme Co. Fixed costs per period are \$7200. Sales volume for the last period was \$29,040 and variable costs were \$17,424. Capacity per period is a sales volume of \$35,000. Find the break-even point in dollars and as percent-capacity. Total Revenue = Q Total Cost = FC + (TVC/Sales) Q TC = (17424/29040) Q TC = Q (Variable costs are 60% of sales dollars) TVC/Sales is called the Per Dollar Variable Cost or Per Dollar Variable Factor. The break-even point is found by setting Total Revenue = Total Cost Q = Q 0.40Q = 7200 Q = In dollars the break-even point is \$18, When you have to find the break-even point as a percent of capacity, the capacity (whether in dollars or quantity) is given in the question. Choose the break-even point in units that match the capacity units and divide. BE (in quantity or dollars) BE % capacity = Capacity (in quantity or dollars) 100 The breakeven point as a percent capacity is \$18000/\$35000 = =51.4% Student review only.

3 Contribution margin and contribution rate The contribution margin is the difference between the selling price and the variable cost (whether they are given as per unit prices or total dollars). But what does the contribution margin mean? It s how much money is left over after variable costs are paid to CONTRIBUTE toward fixed costs and profit. CM = P VC For a problem with unit prices given, find the contribution margin per unit. In the case where the problem gives you total sales dollars and total variable cost, the contribution margin is given as: CM = 1 (TVC)/Sales Note this equation tells you what fraction of every dollar contributes towards fixed costs and profit. The contribution rate is the contribution margin expressed as a percentage of selling price. For problems with per unit prices given, CR = CM/P 100% For problems with total sales dollars, the contribution rate is: CR = CM 100 (because the CM is already expressed as a fraction of the sales). Example 3: A games dealer has the following data in her operating budget. Sales were \$1,020,000 with fixed costs for the period of \$160,000. The total variable cost was \$581,400. Find the contribution margin, contribution rate, and break-even point in sales dollars. This is a total sales dollar problem, so recalling that price per unit is assumed to be \$1, and that variable costs are expressed as (TVC/Sales), CM = 1 (TVC/Sales) CM = 1 (581,400/1,020,000) = 0.43 The contribution rate is the contribution margin as a percentage of selling price: CR = = 43% The break-even sales dollars is: BE = FC/CM = \$160,000/0.43 = \$372, Using Graphs for Break-Even Analysis The relationship between quantity and revenue and quantity and costs can be represented graphically by plotting the equations discussed above. The intersection of the two lines (total costs and total revenue) represents the break-even point. The horizontal axis shows volume of output (Q) and the vertical axis shows sales in \$. The checkered area shows where profit is obtained; the striped area shows loss is incurred (as total cost is greater than total revenue). Student review only. May not be reproduced for classes. 3

4 Total Revenue (TR) Break-even point Total Cost (TC) Sales \$ Variable Costs (VC) Fixed Costs (FC) Volume of output (units or percent capacity) Analysis of Changes to Cost-Volume-Profit Relationship If fixed costs or variable costs or selling price of an item changes, this will obviously affect the relationship between TR and TC. For instance, in the break-even analysis (TR = TC) if the fixed costs increase, the number of products sold to break even must also increase. If the selling price of an item decreases, the break-even quantity will also decrease. To determine a profit or loss other than 0, we re-arrange the equation to: TR TC = profit (loss) We can continue to analyze how changes in the selling price, fixed costs or variable costs will affect the profit (loss) for the business.
