The sales mix %'s for Guillen's Chicago and Charlotte Divisions are 70% and 30%. The contribution margin ratios are: Chi (40%) & Charlotte (30%). Fixed costs are $555,000. What is Guillen's Break even point? | First find the BEP in units = FC/(price per unit-variable cost). second- price per unit X BEP units In this problem the answer is $1,500,000 |

If a firm increases its activity level, | some costs will change, others will remain the same |

If the activity level increases 10%, total variable cost will | Increase 10% |

In using the high-low method, the fixed cost | may be determined by subtracting the total variable cost from either the total cost at the low or high activity |
