# Total Costs

### Lauren, Cole, Maia, Beau

Total costs= fixed costs + variable costs

If fixed costs are $1,000 for the month and variable costs are $500, total costs are $1,500 for that month.

For example: The total cost of making bicycle helmets is $1,500, and the quantity produced is 50. To calculate the average total cost, divide.

($1,500 / 50 = $30)
