Case Study 1Springfield Express is a luxury passenger carrier in Texas. All seats are first class, and the following data are available:Number of seats per passenger train car 90Average load factor (percentage of seats filled) 70%Average full passenger fare $ 160Average variable cost per passenger $ 70Fixed operating cost per month $3,150,000Formula :Revenue = Units Sold * Unit priceContribution Margin = Revenue – All Variable CostContribution Margin Ratio = Contribution Margin/Selling PriceBreak Even Points in Units = (Total Fixed Costs + Target Profit )/Contribution MarginBreak Even Points in Sales = (Total Fixed Costs + Target Profit )/Contribution Margin RatioMargin of Safety = Revenue – Break Even Points in SalesDegree of Operating Leverage = Contribution Margin/Net IncomeNet Income = Revenue – Total Variable Cost – Total Fixed CostUnit Product Cost using Absorption Cost = (Total Variable Cost + Total Fixed Cost)/# of unitsa.Contribution margin per passenger =?Contribution margin ratio =?Break-even point in passengers = Fixed costs/Contribution Margin =Passengers =?Break-even point in dollars = Fixed Costs/Contribution Margin Ratio =$ ?b.Compute # of seats per train car (remember load factor?)If you know # of BE passengers for one train car and the grand total of passengers, you can compute # of train cars (rounded) =?c.
