MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTING 2Part AA1: Total Cost Function for Each CategoryThe supplies used by Loose Tooth Incorporation are mixed. This indicates that they have a fixed cost and a variable cost element. The high-low method is used to disaggregate the mixed costs into fixed cost and variable costs components (Weygandt, Kimmel, $ Kieso, 2010). The difference between the high and low level of costs are considered variable costs given that only the variable cost element varies with the level of activity. Step 1: Computation of the Variable Cost Using High-Low MethodActivity LevelItemHighLow Change Total Costs $ 175,099.00$ 143,900.00$ 31,199.00Number of Visits3,6002,3001,300Variable Costs Per Visit$ 24.00Step 2: Computation of the Fixed and Variable Cost of Supplies XItem201420152016Total Costs $ 143,900.00 $ 163,600.00 $ 175,099.00 Variable Costs $ 55,198.23 $ 71,997.69 $ 86,397.23 Fixed Costs $ 88,701.77 $91,602.31 $ 88,701.77 Ratio of Fixed Costs to Total Costs0.620.440.51Fixed Supplies Costs $ 2,404.01 $ 2,068.39 $2,583.56 Variable Supplies Costs $1,495.99 $2,631.61 $2,516.44 (i) Total Cost Function for Fixed CostsThe total cost will be fixed at $ 110, 404.01, $ 118,568.39, and 118, 382.56 during the respective years 2014, 2015, and 2016 regardless of the number of patient visits. The Fixed Cost function isY2014= $ 110,404.01
MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTING 3Y2015= $ 118,568.39Y2016=$118, 82.56(ii) Total Cost Functions for Variable Costs. The variable cost is $24 per units produced; thevariable costs depend on the number of patient visits (X). Therefore the Total Cost function using the variable costs isY = $24XA2: Total Cost Function for Loose Tooth IncY2014= $ 110,404.01 + $24XY2015= $ 118,568.39 + $24XY2016=$118, 82.56 +$24XA3: Expected Profit in 2017The average cost per visit for the three year is $ 60.46 as shown in the table below .Cost Per Visit 201420152016Average $ 63.04 $ 60.00 $ 58.33 $ 60.46 The average cost per visit is used to compute the total revenue Item2017Visits3800Fees $ 229,743.96 Total revenue $ 229,743.96 ExpensesPart-Time Dentist $ 43,000.00 Receptionist/Technician $ 80,000.23 Supplies $ 5,100.00 Rent $ 8,750.00 Administration $ 40,200.00 Total Expenses $ 175,099.00 Profit $ 54,644.96

The coefficient for revenue is 0.04, t-value is 10.39 and p-value = 0.00 indicating that the relationship between revenue and cost is positive and statistically significant at the 5% confidence level.B1a: Analysis of Whether the Fixed Cost is Greater Than 0The cut-off t-value is 2.228, the t-value for the constant term a is 2.80. This is greater than the cut-off t-value. The t-value analysis indicates that in the relevant range, the fixed cost is significantly different from zero (Weygandt, Kimmel, $ Kieso, 2010).
