How do variable and fixed costs differ?

Fixed costs remain the same and variable costs change due to activity. Fixed costs are expenses that must be paid and do not change due to activity of the business no matter what. Variable costs changes due to the activities of the business. Such activities include sales, production, inventory, and cost of goods.

I hope this helps!

Another homework question from yet another person who hasn't read the rules about homework.
