Contribution margin

If this increases, then the ability to break even will be more. Even at a lower volume it can sustain the operation.

If this decreases, then the ability to break even decreases.

Variable Costs

If this increases, then the ability to break even will be less. At a higher volume it can sustain the operation.

If this decreases, then the ability to break even increases.

Fixed Costs

If this increases, then the ability to break even will be less. It has to have a higher volume to sustain the operation
