a) Degree of operating leverage = % Change in EBIT / % Change in Sales Fixed costs = P3,600,000 Total Variable Costs = P900 x 12,000 watches = P10,800,000 Total Costs = P3,600,000 + P10,800,000 = P14,400,000 EBIT = Sales - Total Costs EBIT for 12,000 Watches = P1,500 x 12,000 = P18,000,000 % Change in EBIT = 18% % Change in Sales = 5% Degree of operating leverage at sales of 12,000 watches = 18% / 5% = 3.6 b) % Change in Profits = % Change in EBIT x Degree of Operating Leverage % Change in EBIT = 5% Degree of operating leverage = 3.6 % Change in Profits = 5% x 3.6 = 18%
