Sales volume (units) 6,400 7,400

Cost of sales \$373,120 \$431,420

Selling and administrative costs \$486,400 \$510,600

Total variable cost per unit is estimated to be:

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
