An example of a fixed cost would be rent. To explain, if a shoe company's rent was $5,000 per month, and the company produced 1,000 shoes in January, and only 850 shoes in February, the fixed cost would be spread across 1000 shoes in January ($5 per shoe), and spread across 850 shoes in February ($5.88 per shoe).;A variable cost is the opposite. The cost per unit stays the same, but changes in total in proportion to volume. An example of a variable cost is direct materials. If it costs the shoe company $10 in direct materials for every shoe, then in January direct materials cost $10,000, and in February direct materials cost $8,500. The cost varied per month based on the total volume produced.;A mixed cost is a cost that includes both a fixed and variable cost component. This makes it difficult to determine the different costs unless you first separate the costs into it's own components. For example, utilities that have a base rate, plus an additional cost per unit used above and beyond the allotted amount.;The article I am referencing is regarding the impact of higher fixed costs, lower variable costs on the cost behavior and cost rigidity.
