Breakeven point (in units) = Fixed costs/Contribution per unit

Variable cost per unit = (£4,810+£7,508+£7,682)/10000 cans= £2.00 per unit.

Contribution per unit = £5.00-£2.00= £3.00 per unit.

Breakeven point (in units) = £57,000/£3.00 = 19,000 units

Breakeven revenue can be calculated by multiplying sales price per unit by breakeven units.

19,000*£5.00= £95,000

60% of total cost is fixed cost (£378,000). 56% of the fixed cost is apportioned to Paint (£211,680).

40% of total cost is variable cost (£252,000). 38% of the variable cost is apportioned to Canning (£95,760).
