Enter the maintenance cost per unit ($/unit) and the number of units produced into the Maintenance Cost Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Maintenance Cost.

## Maintenance Cost Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Maintenance Cost.

**MC = MCU * #U**

- Where MC is the Maintenance Cost ($)
- MCU is the maintenance cost per unit ($/unit)
- #U is the number of units produced

## How to Calculate Maintenance Cost?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Maintenance Cost.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the maintenance cost per unit ($/unit). The maintenance cost per unit ($/unit) is given as 5.5.
- Next, determine the number of units produced. The number of units produced is provided as 300.
- Finally, calculate the Maintenance Cost using the equation above:

MC = MCU * #U

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

MC = 5.5 * 300 = 1650.00 ($)

Example Problem #2:** **

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

maintenance cost per unit ($/unit) = 2.40

number of units produced = 600

Entering these values and solving gives:

MC = MCU * #U = 1440.00 ($)
