# cost & managerial accounting

## Project Description:

speedy parcel service operates a fleet of delivery trucks in a large metropolitan area. a careful study by the company’s cost analyst has determined that if a truck is driven 168,000 miles during a year, the average operating cost is 13.2 cents per mile. if a truck is driven only 112,000 miles during a year, the average operating cost increases to 16.7 cents per mile.

required:
1.

using the high-low method, estimate the variable and fixed cost elements of the annual cost of truck operation. (round the "variable cost per mile" to 3 decimal places and the "fixed cost" to the nearest dollar amount.)

variable cost \$ per mile
fixed cost \$ per year

2.

express the variable and fixed costs in the form y = a + bx. (round the "variable cost per mile" to 3 decimal places and the "fixed cost" to the nearest dollar amount.)

y = \$ + \$ x

3.

if a truck were driven 140,000 miles during a year, what total cost would you expect to be incurred? (round the "variable cost per mile" to 3 decimal places. round your intermediate and final answers to the nearest dollar amount.)
