Jonathan Macintosh is a ghly successful Pennsylvania orchardman who has formed s own company to produce and package applesauce. Apples can be stored for several months in cold storage, so applesauce production is relatively uniform throughout the year. The recently red controller for the firm is about to apply the gh-low method in estimating the company’s energy cost behavior. The following costs were incurred during the past 12 months: Month Pints of Applesauce Produced Energy Cost January ………………………………………………………. 35,000 ………………………………………. \$23,400 February ……………………………………………………… 21,000 ………………………………………. 22,100 March ………………………………………………………… 22,000 ………………………………………. 22,000 April …………………………………………………………… 24,000 ………………………………………. 22,450 May …………………………………………………………… 30,000 ………………………………………. 22,900 June ………………………………………………………….. 32,000 ………………………………………. 23,350 July ……………………………………………………………. 40,000 ………………………………………. 28,000 August ……………………………………………………….. 30,000 ………………………………………. 22,800 September …………………………………………………… 30,000 ………………………………………. 23,000 October ………………………………………………………. 28,000 ………………………………………. 22,700 November ……………………………………………………. 41,000 ………………………………………. 24,100 December …………………………………………………… 39,000 ………………………………………. 24,950 Required: 1. Use the gh-low method to estimate the company’s energy cost behavior and express it in equation form. 2. Predict the energy cost for a month in wch 24,500 pints of applesauce are produced. 3.
