    The semi variable costs are made up of -
    Fixed Costs 8,500 + variable costs of 2500 divided by 500 = 5 (times the quantity by 5 and then add on the fixed costs.
    (First work out the total variable costs 2,500 and then divide this by the number of units to give you cost per unit)

    As with above work out the cost per unit and then multiply with units produced
    Variable costs on line 1 / units = variable costs per unit x units produced = variable costs.

    Hope this helps
