2 MA1 MODULE 4 Part 1 Variable cost behavior patterns Fixed costs Topics Part 1 Variable cost behavior patterns (Topic 4.1) Identify examples of variable costs, and explain the effect of a change in activity on both total variable costs and per unit variable costs. (Level 1) Variable cost: Total cost changes in direct proportion to activity Unit cost stays the same e.g. The cost of skateboards for a sports retailer is variable. Number of skateboards sold Cost per skateboard Total cost of skateboards 1 $150 $150 2 $150 $ $150 $1,500 Cost of skateboards Skateboards sold 5 Part 1 Variable cost behavior patterns (Topic 4.1) Step-variable cost: Total cost changes only in response to wide changes in activity Treated as variable if steps are narrow e.g. The cost of salestaff (no commision) Number of skateboards sold Total cost 1-50 $5, $10, $15,000 Cost of sales staff Skateboards sold 6

3 Part 1 Variable cost behavior patterns (Topic 4.1) Relevant range of Step-variable cost: activity Total cost changes only in response to wide changes in activity If no change within the relevant range than treat as fixed. e.g. The cost of salesstaff (no commission) Number of skateboards sold Total cost 1-50 $5, $10, $15,000 Cost of salesstaff Skateboards sold 7 Part 1 Variable cost behavior patterns (Topic 4.1) Relevant range of activity Curvilinear cost: Many variable costs are more accurately described as being curvilinear Can be described as variable within the relevant range Cost Volume 8 Part 1 Fixed costs (Topic 4.2) Identify examples of fixed costs, and explain the effect of a change in activity on both total fixed costs and fixed costs expressed on a per unit basis. (Level 1) Fixed cost: Total cost remains constant regardless of changes in activity Unit cost becomes smaller as the activity increases. e.g. The rental cost for the sports retailer s shop is fixed Number of skateboards sold Cost of rent per skateboard Total cost of rent 1 $2,000 $2,000 2 $1,000 $2, $20 $2,000 Cost of store rent Skateboards sold Discretionary vs. Committed 9

4 MA1 MODULE 4 Part 2 Analysis of mixed costs Topic Part 2 Analysis of mixed costs (Topic 4.3) Analyze a mixed cost using the high-low method and the regression method. (Level 1) Mixed cost: Contains both variable and Total cost fixed costs To analyze, should be separated into fixed & variable e.g. The rental cost is $2,000 plus 1% of the $200 selling price for each board sold. # sold Fixed cost Variable cost Total cost 1 $2,000 $2 $2, $2,000 $40 $2, $2,000 $200 $2,200 Cost of store rent Skateboards sold 11 Part 2 Analysis of mixed costs (Topic 4.3) Analyze a mixed cost using the high-low method and the regression method. (Level 1) Mixed cost: Contains both variable and Total cost fixed costs To analyze, should be separated into fixed & variable e.g. The rental cost is $2,000 plus 1% of the $200 selling price for Xeach board a sold. bx Y # sold Fixed cost Variable cost Total cost 1 $2,000 $2 $2, $2,000 $40 $2, $2,000 $200 $2,200 Cost of store rent Skateboards sold Cost function: Y= a + bx 12
