Activity /Cost Driver /Cost /Driver Volume
Using ATM # of uses $850,000 10,000,000 uses

Managing functions Total deposits $3,000,000 $187,500,000 in deposits

Data on two representative customers follow:

Customer A Customer B
200 250 ATM uses
5 20 Branch visits
40 1500 # of transactions
$300 $5,000 Average deposit

(a) Compute the bank's operating profits:

(b) Compute the profit from Customer A and Customer B, assuming that customer costs are based only on deposits. Interest costs = 0.5 percent of deposits; operating costs are 4 percent ( = $8,700,000/$187,500,000) of deposits.
