Dear Sam,
Thank you for your prompt reply. dear kindly check this example and tell me whether im doing right or wrong? we have these figures >Sale price of one unit=1000 >Fixed Cost for one unit=500 >variable Cost for one unit=200 >Contribution as per Massod=1000200=8000 and we desire that one unit give us Rs=300 profit CVP=(total fixed costs + desired level of profit)/contribution per unit of production.=??? CVP=1.00 how can we analyse??? Thanks & Regards, Tariq!!!

I happened to read your question, and I would like to answer it just for reference.
as far as I am concerned, the problem of your question lies in the figure of fixed cost for one unit, which is 500. Given all these conditions, we can calculate the profit per unit as contribution per unit fixed cost per unit = 8000500=7500, so how could it be that profit for one unit is 300? if you want get the figure of 300 for profit per unit, the fixed cost per unit should be 7500(8000300), instead of 500 per unit. total fixed cost remains unchanged with the changing of production/sales volume within a certain relevant range, and fixed cost per unit changes as the volume changes. Therefore, total fixed costs ,instead of fixed cost per unit,should be given if your want to work out the sales volume for a desired profit. formulation is as follows CVP= total fixed costs/( contribution per unit  desired profit per unit) <blockquote id="quote"><font size="1" face="Verdana, Tahoma, Arial" id="quote">quote<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"><i>Originally posted by ez2xs</i> <br />Dear Sam, Thank you for your prompt reply. dear kindly check this example and tell me whether im doing right or wrong? we have these figures >Sale price of one unit=1000 >Fixed Cost for one unit=500 >variable Cost for one unit=200 >Contribution as per Massod=1000200=8000 and we desire that one unit give us Rs=300 profit CVP=(total fixed costs + desired level of profit)/contribution per unit of production.=???

Some times question is given in aggregate values. like sale, variable cost and fixed cost is given in aggregate value. In this situation, we have to find contribution/sale ratio. divide contribution by total sale which is given. To find BEP in valuea or sale or rupees, divide total fixed cost by contribution/sale ratio discussed above. To check this either or answer is correct or not, find variable/sale ratio likewise contribution/sale ratio. Suppose BEP in rupees is 120000 and varible/sale ratio is 60%. deduct 60% from 120000 and minus fixed cost from contribution, the anwer is zero. your
For example, sale is 300000, varible cost is 150000 and fixed cost is 80000. find bep in rupees. working" salevariable cost = contribution 300000150000 =150000 C/s ratio= 150000/300000=50% BEP = fixed cost/ c/s ratio 80000/50% =160000 checking" BEP= 160000 Variable cost. 80000 v/sale ratio 150000/300000 50%  80000 fixed cost 80000  0
