    5. Calculate the unknowns for the following independent situations. All given activity levels are within the relevant range.

    A) Total fixed costs for Company A are $250,000. Total costs, both fixed and variable, are $378,000 for Company A when 40,000 units are produced.

    Calculate:
    1) variable cost per unit
    2) fixed cost per unit

    B) Total fixed costs for Company Z are $200,000. Total costs, both fixed and variable, are $450,000 if 125,000 units are produced.

    Calculate:
    1) variable cost per unit
    2) fixed cost per unit if 125,000 units are produced
    3) total variable costs if production decreases to 100,000 units

    C) Total variable costs are $300,000 if 50,000 units are produced. Total fixed costs are $150,000 if 35,000 units are produced.

    Calculate:
    1) unit variable cost
    2) fixed cost per unit if 35,000 units are produced
    3) total variable costs if 35,000 units are produced

    A. Variable Cost = Total cost - Fixed cost = 378000 - 250000 = 128000

    Variable cost per unit = 128000/40000 = $3.20
    Fixed cost per unit = ...
