Variable Total variable cost is Variable cost per unit remains

Total fixed cost remains the

Fixed level changes within the down as activity level goes up.
relevant range.
- Mixed costs have both fixed and variable components
- Mixed cost equation is Y=a +bX
Y= the total mixed cost
A= the total fixed cost (the vertical intercept of the line)
B= the variable cost per unit of the activity (the slope of the line)
X= the activity level of activity
- High Low Method
The total variable per hour of maintenance is equal to the change in cost divided
by the change hours
so, 2400/ 300= \$8.00 per hour
You can then use this to solve for your total fixed cost
You can then use the total fixed cost for the cost equation for maintenance
The cost equation is y= total fixed cost + (variable per hour)(X)
