The answer is 4

  1. Not correct
  2. Not correct
  3. Not correct
  4. Correct -Break-even = Fixed cost (FC) / Selling Price-Average Variable costs, OR Contribution = FC/BE, OR average variable costs are total variable costs divided by output OR variable costs = sales revenue minus FC divided by breakeven OR variable costs are costs which vary with output OR Break-even is the output level where total costs equals total revenue. ==> 40 = £60/£9 – £7.50
