Hi and welcome to Just Answer! I'm happy to help answer your Finance questions.




Variable Cost of Goods Manufactured / Units Manufactured = Unit Costs

25,344,000/2200 units = $11,520/unit



(Variable Costs of Goods Manufactured + Fixed Manufacturing Costs)/Units Manufactured = Unit Costs


(25,344,000+11,616,000)/2,200 units = $16,800/unit
