linear cost function

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

*Cost behaviour that, when plotted on a graph against activity levels, results in a straight line. For example, total fixed cost levels and variable costs per unit of activity will both result in a straight line horizontal to the x-axis when activity, production, or sales is plotted on the x-axis. Total variable costs will also result in a straight line and is thus a linear cost function.
