Part 1

Contribution margin ratio = Contribution margin / Sales * 100

= \$100,000 / \$200,000 * 100

= 50%

Break-even volume in dollars = Fixed cost / Contribution margin ratio

= \$80,000 / 50%

= \$160,000

Part 2

Contribution margin ratio = Contribution margin / Sales * 100

= \$100,000 / \$200,000 * 100

= 50%

Break-even volume in dollars = Fixed cost / Contribution margin ratio

= \$80,000 / 50%

= \$160,000

Break-even ratio to sales = Break-even volume in dollars / Sales

= \$160,000 / \$200,000

= 0.8

Part 3

Operating leverage = Contribution margin / Profit

= \$100,000 / \$20,000

= 5

Part 4

Margin of safety ratio to sales = (Sales - Break even sales) / Sales

= (\$200,000 - \$160,000) / \$200,000

= 0.2
