• Slides: 66 Cost-Volume-Profit Analysis Chapter 18 Learning Objective 1 Identify how changes in volume affect costs  Variable Costs Total variable costs change in direct proportion to changes in the volume of activity ◦ If activity increases, so does the cost Unit variable cost remains constant Units produced Direct materials cost per unit Total direct materials cost 100 \$25 \$2, 500 200 \$25 5, 000 300 \$25 7, 500 400 \$25 10, 000 500 \$25 12, 500 Copyright (c) 2009 Prentice Hall. All rights reserved 4  Fixed Costs Do not change over wide ranges in volume Examples: ◦ Straight-line depreciation ◦ Salaries for managers Fixed cost per unit is inversely proportional to activity ◦ The more activity, the less the fixed cost per unit Copyright (c) 2009 Prentice Hall. All rights reserved 6  Mixed Costs Have both a fixed and variable component Example: ◦ Utilities that charge a set fee per month, plus a charge for usage Copyright (c) 2009 Prentice Hall.
