The degree of operating leverage at 20,000 bags and at 25,000 bags

DOL = (Quantity x (Selling Price - Variable Cost))/((Quantity x (Selling Price - Variable Cost))- Fixed Cost)

DOL (20,000) = (20,000*(10-5))/(((20,000*(10-5))-80,000) = 5 times

DOL (25,000) = (25,000*(10-5))/(((25,000*(10-5))-80,000) = 2.78 times
