a). Variable cost per passenger=\$70.00 Full fare per passenger=\$160.00 Contribution margin = \$ 160- \$ 70 = \$ 90 per passenger Contribution margin ratio = \$ 90/\$160 = 56.25% Break-even point in passengers = Fixed costs/Contribution Margin = \$ 3,150,000/\$ 90 per passenger = 35,000 passengers Break-even point in dollars = Fixed Costs/Contribution Margin Ratio= \$ 3,150,000/0.5625 = \$ 5,600,000. b). Average load factor=70% of 90 90 X 0.70 =63 seats per train car 35,000/ 63 = 556 train cars (rounded) c). CM = \$190 - \$ 70 = \$120 per passenger 90 X .60 = 54 filled seats Break-even point in passengers = fixed costs/ contribution margin= \$ 3,150,000/\$120 = 26,250 passengers 26,250/54 = 486 train cars (rounded)
