The question in my book given the sales = 75 000, variable cost = 45 000, fixed cost = 25 000, profit = 5 000. Then the sales increased 40 000. The answer for variable cost is 80 000. How to get the answer? I don't have any accounting background so sorry if this is too easy...

May be it is a printing mistake. According to my calculation answer for variable cost should be 69,000.

Waiting for some other people replies.
