--
Variable per cost unit =difference in variable /difference in tons
(598 000-345 000)/ (2600-1500) = \$230 per ton
Fixed cost- mining = total cost variable cost
598 000-(230 *2600)= \$ 0
--
Variable cost per unit- royalty = difference in total costs /difference in tons
(201000-135000)/ (2600-1500) =\$ 60 per ton
Fixed cost- royalty = total cost variable cost
201 000- (\$60 * 2600) = \$ 45 000
2. Calculate the total cost for next February when 1,650 tons are expected to be extracted.
