@ shilpa  madam

solution

suppose sales =100 units @ 1 each....................100

(-)contribution (40% of sales................................40

                                               ------------------------------------------------

variable cost..................1....................................60     

when selling price is reduced by 20%

new sales                                                          80

(-)variable cost                                                    60

                                                           ----------------------------

new contribution                                                  20

In order to maintain same level of contribution volume of sales should be (40/20*80)=160..........(step 1)

problem: iam facing problem in step no 1.can you explain me.

Dear Shilpa Maam,

I have a question w.r.t to the above question aswel.

How can the Variable cost be same i.e (Rs. 60). Why not Revised Selling Price * 60% (100% - 40%) - So the revised Variable cost would be Rs.48 (80*60%).

Regards,

Arihant
