Accounting 212 Chapter 5 Notes Cost­Volume­Profit Relationships  This chapter mostly consists of equations and computations.  Some abbreviations that will be used throughout these notes are: o Contribution Margin will be CM o Fixed Costs/Expenses will be FC o Variable Costs/Expenses will be VC o Break­Even will be BE o Net Operating Income will be NoI  Following is a list of the equations used: o CM = Sales Price per unit – VC per unit  Ex. $20 ­ $12 = $8 o CM Ratio = CM/Sales Price per units  Ex. $8/$20 = .4 = 40% o # of Units to BE = FC/CM  Ex. $6,000/$8 = 750 Units o Units to Achieve Target Income = (FC + Target Income)/CM  Ex. ($6,000 + $5,000)/$8 = 1,375 units o Sales to BE = FC/CM Ratio  Ex. $6,000/.4 = $15,000 o Sales to Achieve Target Income = (FC + Target Income)/CM Ratio  Ex. ($6,000 + $5,000)/.4 = $27,500 o Margin of Safety = Sales – BE Sales  Ex. $27,000 ­ $15,000 = $12,000 o Margin of Safety Percentage = Margin of Safety/Sales  Ex. $12,000/$27,000 = .44 = 44% o Degree of Operating Leverage = CM/NoI  Ex. $54,000/$24,000 = 2.25  o Percent Increase in NoI = Degree of Operating Leverage x Percent Increase in  Sales  Ex. 2.25 x 5% = .1125 = 11.25% o NoI = CM – FC  Ex. $8,000 ­ $6,000 = $2,000  The degree of operating leverage is a measure, at a given level of sales, of how a  percentage change in sales volume will affect profits, for example if the degree of  operating leverage is 2, then net operating income will grow two times as fast as the sales  It is important to understand that the cost structure matters. For example, sales minus  variable cost equals the contribution margin, contribution margin minus fixed costs  equals net operating income. You can change different numbers in this and still get the  same NoI. However, the changes would also change the contribution margin ratio and the number of break even units
