what is the degree of operating leaverage at 20,000 bags and at 25,000 bags

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*(105))/(((20,000*(105))80,000) = 5 times
DOL (25,000) = (25,000*(105))/(((25,000*(105))80,000) = 2.78 times
