Problem 5-12 – Page 220

1. Identify each of the company’s expenses (including cost of goods sold) as either variable, fixed or mixed.

Variable | Fixed | Mixed | Cost of goods soldShipping expense | Advertising expenseInsurance expenseDepreciation expense | Salaries and commissions |

2. Using the high-low method, separate each mixed expense into variable and fixed elements. State the cost formula for each mixed expense.

Shipping | Units Sold | Shipping | High activity level | 5000 | 38000 | Low activity level | 4000 | 34000 | | 1000 | 4000 |

Variable cost = $4000/1000 = $4.00
Fixed cost = $38000 – (4x5000) = $18000

Salaries and commissions | Units Sold | Salaries and Commission | High activity level | 5000 | 90000 | Low activity level | 4000 | 78000 | Change | 1000 | 12000 |

Variable cost = $12,000/1000 = $12.00
Fixed cost = $90000 – (12x5000) = $30000

3. Redo the company’s income statement at the 5,000-unit level of activity using the contribution format.
