Answer- Total variable cost per unit is estimated to be = $82.50 per unit.
Explanation- Total variable cost per unit = Variable cost of sales per unit+ Variable Selling and administrative costs
= $58.30 per unit +$24.20 per unit
= $82.50 per unit
Where- Variable cost of sales per unit = Change in cost of sales/Change in sales volume
= ($431420 - $373120)/ (7400 units- 6400 units)
= $58300/1000 units
= $58.30 per unit
Variable Selling and administrative cost per unit = Change in Selling and administrative costs/ Change in sales volume
= ($510600 -$486400)/ (7400 units- 6400 units)
= $24200/1000 units
= $24.20 per unit
