Enter the average variance cost ($) and the average non-sunk fixed cost ($) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Average non-sunk Cost curve. 

Average non-sunk Cost Curve Formula

ANSC = AVC + ANFC

Variables:

  • ANSC is the Average non-sunk Cost Curve ($)
  • AVC is the average variance cost ($)
  • ANFC is the average non-sunk fixed cost ($)

To calculate the Average non-sunk Cost Curve (shut down price), sum the average variance cost to the average non-sunk fixed costs.

How to Calculate Average non-sunk Cost Curve?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Average non-sunk Cost curve.


  1. First, determine the average variance cost ($). 
  2. Next, determine the average non-sunk fixed cost ($). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = ANSC = AVC + ANFC.
  4. Finally, calculate the Average non-sunk Cost curve.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

average variance cost ($) = 75

average non-sunk fixed cost ($) = 93
