Question

Fixed Costs are $50,000 and our product sells for $200 per unit. To produce each product it takes $120 in variable costs. Current sales are 800 units. What is the Margin of Safety?

Answer #1

**Answer** : Margin of Safety =
**$35,000** or **21.875 %**

**Explanation**:

Contribution magin % = (Selling price per unit - Variable per unit) / Selling price per unit

= ($200 - $120) / $200 = 40 %.

Break even point ($) = Fixed Costs / Contribution magin %

= $50,000 / 40 % = $125,000.

Current sales = 800 units * $200 = $160,000.

**Margin of Safety** = Current sales - Break even
point ($)

= $160,000 - $125,000 = **$35,000**.

**Margin of Safety % =** Margin of Safety / Current
sales

= $35,000 / $160,000

= **21.875 %**.

Zhao Co. has fixed costs of $469,200. Its single product sells
for $193 per unit, and variable costs are $125 per unit. If the
