Calculate the flexed budget where Original budget is GBP 60,860 and Actual is GBP 65,080.

196Total cost = fixed cost + total variable cost

So,

for the budget of 178,000 units

Total variable cost = Total cost - fixed cost = £60,860 - £12,800 = £48,060

Variable cost per unit = Total variable cost/Number of units = £48,060/178,000 = £0.27

For the flexed budget of 192,000 units

Total cost = fixed cost + total variable cost = £12,800 + (£0.27 x 192,000) = £64,640
