- This powerful tool for planning and decision making can be used to calculate:
o The number of units that must be sold to break even
o The impact of a given reduction in fixed costs on the break-even point
o The impact of an increase in price on profit
Break-Even Point
- Where profits are zero
- Sales Variable Cost = Contribution Margin
- Contribution Margin Fixed Costs = Operating Income
- Contribution Margin Ratio = Contribution Margin/Sales
- Operating income = sales total variable expenses total fixed expenses
Break-even number of units = total fixed expenses/ price variable cost
Variable cost ratio= variable cost per unit/price
Break-even sales= total fixed expenses/contribution margin ratio
