# Question: Regina Star delivers flowers for several local flower stores She

Regina Star delivers flowers for several local flower stores. She charges clients \$0.85 per mile driven. Regina has determined that if she drives 1,200 miles in a month, her average operating cost is \$0.80 per mile. If she drives 2,000 miles in a month, her average operating cost is \$0.60 per mile. Regina has used the high-low method (covered in Chapter 5) to determine that her monthly cost equation is: total cost = \$600 + \$0.30 per mile.

Required:
1. Determine how many miles Regina needs to drive to break even.
2. Assume Regina drove 900 miles last month. Without making any additional calculations, determine whether she earned a profit or a loss for the month.
3. If Regina wants to earn \$800 a month, determine how many miles she must drive.
4. Prepare a contribution margin income statement assuming Regina drove 900 miles last month. Use this information to calculate Regina’s degree of operating leverage.
