1 Chapter Financial arithmetic 17 Breakeven analysis The success or failure of any business enterprise can be expressed mathematically as follows: P = R C or L = C R where: P = profit made by a business L = loss made by a business R = revenue (takings, income): money received by a company for the sale of goods and/or services C = cost (expenses, overheads) If the revenue, R, is greater than the cost, C, a business is said to be profitable or is making a profit, P. However, if the revenue, R, is less than the cost, C, the business is carrying a loss, L. In the case where there is neither a profit nor a loss, we say the revenue is equal to the cost. Such a point at which the amount made on sales equals the total costs is called the breakeven point. For an enterprise it is very important to estimate its expected business costs (preferably, before starting the business!) to decide whether sales levels will be high enough to make the business viable. Hence, the aim of the breakeven analysis is to determine the number of items which must be produced and sold in order to cover the expenses of the business. Regardless of the type of business activity a firm is involved in, there are two main types of costs: fixed and variable. 1. Fixed costs are those which remain unchanged irrespective of changes in the quantity of production. These include rates, rent, building maintenance, interest on loans (if any), insurance premiums, depreciation of the tools, machinery and equipment, and administrative costs. 2. Variable costs are those which change in direct proportion to production. These include purchases, transport and sales commissions. A breakeven analysis performed in order to find the breakeven point may involve a graphical method and an algebraic method. A graphical analysis involves graphing both the cost and $ Breakeven point revenue equations, each of which produces a straight line. Cost function Profit Their point of intersection is the breakeven point. The graph Loss at right represents a breakeven situation. Revenue function The graph illustrates that initially the costs are greater than Fixed costs the revenue. This is represented by the brown shaded region and is called a loss. The two lines intersect at the breakeven point 0 Production units n indicating the costs and revenue are equal. Finally the graph illustrates that after the breakeven point the revenue is greater than the costs. This is represented by the green shaded region and is called a profit. An algebraic analysis involves solving the cost equation and revenue equation simultaneously to determine the number of units which must be produced and sold to reach the breakeven point.
2 18 General Mathematics WORKED Example A manufacturer of bookshelves sells them at an average cost of $110 each. The cost of production is made up of two parts: weekly fixed costs of $1000 and a variable cost of $25 for each bookshelf. Algebraically and graphically, find the weekly production of bookshelves required to reach the breakeven point. Algebraic method 12 THINK WRITE Define each of the variables. Write down the equation which defines the cost. Note: The cost of making one bookshelf contains the fixed amount of $1000 and a variable cost of $25 per bookshelf manufactured. Write down the equation which defines the revenue. Note: The revenue comes from selling bookshelves for $110 each. Equate the cost and revenue equations. Note: In order to break even, costs must equal the revenue. Solve for x. Subtract 25x from both sides of the equation. Divide both sides of the equation by 85. Let x = the required number of bookshelves to be produced weekly C = the total cost of making bookshelves weekly R = the cost of selling bookshelves C = fixed cost + variable cost C = x R = 110x To break even: C = R x = 110x x 25x = 110x 25x 1000 = 85x x = Evaluate. x = Round up the value to the nearest 12 bookshelves must be produced in order to whole number and answer the question. reach the breakeven point. Note: x represents the number of bookshelves and hence must be an integer value. = x
3 Chapter Financial arithmetic 19 Graphical method THINK 1 Rule up a set of axes on graph paper. Label the origin. Label the horizontal axis as x, the number of bookshelves sold and scale appropriately. Label the vertical axis as $ and scale appropriately. 2 Graph the cost equation. Choose two different xvalues, substitute them into the equation and obtain the corresponding C values. Note: In order to draw any straight line graph, two points are required. Plot the points and connect them with a straight line. Graph the revenue equation. Choose two different xvalues, substitute them into the equation and obtain the corresponding C values. Plot the points and connect them with a straight line. 4 Label the point of intersection as the breakeven point. Draw a dotted vertical line from the breakeven point to the xaxis. Read the value from the xaxis. Answer the question. WRITE 5 $ 6 7 C = x Let x = 0 C = = = 1000 (0, 1000) Let x = 10 C = = = 1250 (10, 1250) R = 110x Let x = 0 R = = 0 (0, 0) Let x = 10 R = = 1100 (10, 1100) C = x Costs Breakeven point (11.76, 1294) Revenue R = 110x x Number of bookshelves sold The dotted line intersects the xaxis at approximately Therefore, 12 bookshelves must be produced in order to reach the breakeven point. When working with these types of problem, we may easily check that the answers obtained in either the algebraic or graphical methods are correct by entering the two equations into a graphics calculator and solving. To find the breakeven point graphically: 1. Enter the equations in the Y= menu. 2. Enter WINDOW settings from (for example) 0 to 20 for X, and 0 to for Y.. Use 2nd [CALC] and 5:Intersect to find the breakeven point.

5 Chapter Financial arithmetic The Richardsons like holidaying around Australia using rented cars. They usually hire from two companies: Rentabomb and Chic Lemon. The same family sedan can be hired from Rentabomb for $59 per day flat rate with unlimited kilometres or from Chic Lemon for $42 per day plus a fee of 8c per kilometre over the first 100 km driven. The Richardsons are planning to rent the car for 10 days, and to travel approximately 2600 km. a b d e Which company should they choose?

They find that the cost of the venue depends on two factors: one is fixed, the other variable. The hiring of the hall including a band and lighting is fixed at $650, while the total cost of food and beverages depends on the number of people who attend, and is thus variable. They decide this cost to be $15 per head. Finally, the cost of the tickets will be $25 per head. a Write the above information as two equations. b Graph the two equations and obtain the breakeven point. c Determine how many people must attend the reunion to break even. d Comment on the results obtained in parts b and c. e What will occur if 50 people attend the reunion? f What will occur if 70 people attend the reunion?

6 142 General Mathematics summary Simple interest Simple interest is given by I = PRT where 100 I = interest, $ P = principal, $ R = rate of interest p.a., % T = term of interest, years The total amount is given by A = P + I. When calculating simple interest, the interest earned is the same for each time period. Compound interest r Compound interest formula is given by A = P n 100 where A = amount at the end of n compounding periods, $ P = principal, $ R = rate of interest per period n = number of compounding periods When dealing with compound interest, the interest is calculated on the principal as well as the interest over each time period. If solving equations where the unknown is a power, take the logarithm to base 10 of both sides of the equation, that is, a n = b log 10 a n = log 10 b nlog 10 a = log 10 b Straightline depreciation Straightline depreciation allocates an equal amount of depreciation to each time period over the asset s useful life. The book value of an item at a specific time is defined as the difference between the purchase price and the accumulated depreciation at that time. RT The book value is given by B.V. = P P S The depreciation rate is given by R = np where P = purchase price, $ R = depreciation rate p.a., % T = period of depreciation, years S = scrap value, $ n = number of time periods, years Straightline depreciation may be illustrated graphically as a straight line with a negative gradient. Reducingbalance depreciation Reducingbalance depreciation involves a fixed percentage applied to an amount (book value) changing at the beginning of each time period. n = log 10 b log 10 a
7 Chapter Financial arithmetic 14 R The book value is given by B.V. = P where P = purchase price, $ R = allowed annual rate of depreciation, % n = number of depreciation periods, years Reducingline depreciation may be illustrated graphically by an exponential curve. Unit cost depreciation P S U.C.D. = E where U.C.D. = unit cost depreciation, $/unit P = purchase price, $ S = scrap value, $ E = expected life of asset, number of production units Hirepurchase, flat rate and real rate of interest Flat rate is the simple rate of interest charged on the original sum borrowed. Real or effective rate is the rate of interest being paid on the average principal outstanding. 2400I R ef = Pm ( + 1) 2Rn = n + 1 where R ef = real or effective rate of interest p.a., % I = total interest paid on loan, $ P = total principal owed, $ m = number of monthly instalments R = flat rate of interest p.a., % n = total number of instalments to be made Comparing the flat rate of interest, R, with the effective interest rate, R ef, we see that R ef 2R.
