Thanks, but where does the £6 come from?

Variable cost per unit Emily.

As both production levels shown are under the 30,000, you can use the high low method to find the vcpu.

23000-19000=4900
324400-295000=29400

Divide 29400 by 4900 to give you 6

Hi Gabrielle,

Answers are 21000- F- 181000 V-126000
36000 F-193000 V-205000

Variable for 36000 units worked out as 25000 x £6= 150,000 11000 x £5=55000...150000+55000=205000.

Hope this helps.

The fixed overheads for 21000 should be 169000. The 12000 increase only happens after more than 30000 are produced?

I have fixed overheads at £181,000 as they are for 19000 units and 23000 units, I only added the £12,000 increase to the 36000 units.. could be wrong though..
