  • Total variable costs change when activity changes.

  • Totalfixed costs remain unchanged when activity changes.



Total variable cost example

Your total long distance telephone bill is based on how many minutes you talk.

Total Long DistanceTelephone Bill

Minutes Talked


Variable cost per unit example
Variable Cost Per Unit Example Corporation.

The cost per long distance minute talked is constant. For example, 5 cents per minute.

Per MinuteTelephone Charge

Minutes Talked


Total fixed cost example
Total Fixed Cost Example Corporation.

Your monthly basic telephone bill probably does not change when you make more local calls.

Monthly Basic Telephone Bill

Number of Local Calls


Fixed cost per unit example

Direct and indirect costs1
Direct and Indirect Costs Corporation.

  • A cost can be direct to the department, but indirect to units of product produced in the department.

  • Tracing costs directly to departments or products facilitates responsibility accounting.


Controllable and uncontrollable costs
Controllable and Corporation.Uncontrollable Costs

A cost that can be significantly influencedby a manager is a controllable cost.


Opportunity cost
Opportunity Cost Corporation.

The potential benefit that is given up when one alternative is selected over another.

  • Example: If you werenot attending college,you could be earning$20,000 per year. Your opportunity costof attending college for one year is $20,000.


Sunk costs
Sunk Costs Corporation.

All costs incurred in the past that cannot be changed by any decision made now or in the future.

Differential costs
Differential Costs Corporation.

Costs that differ between alternatives.

Example: You can earn $1,500 per month in yourhometown or $2,000 per month in a nearby city.Your commuting costs are $50 per month in yourhometown and $300 per month to the city.

What is your differential cost?

What is your differential cost?

$300 - $50 = $250


Marginal costs and average costs
Marginal Costs and Average Costs Corporation.

The extra costincurred to produceone additional unit.

The total cost toproduce a quantitydivided by thequantity produced.

Marginal and average costs arelargely a function of cost behavior -- variable and fixed costs.
