Variable cost | Topics | tutor2u Economics

Variable costs vary directly with output. I.e. as production rises, a firm will face higher total variable costs because it needs to purchase extra resources to achieve an expansion of supply. Examples of variable costs include the costs of raw materials, labour costs and consumables.
