Scenario 1

Q

uestion:

Market research for a new product indicates that the product can be sold at $50 per unit. Cost analysis provides the following information:

Fixed Costs per period = $8640

Variable Costs = $30 per unit.

Production Capacity per period = 900 units

How much does the sale of an additional unit of a firm’s product contributetowards increasing its net income?

Applying the

Formulae

As in the previous scenario, the new product can be sold at $50 per unit. Costs are as follows: Fixed Costs are $8640 for the period , Variable Costs are $30per unit, and theProductionCapacity is 900 units per period.

CM = S - VC

= $50 - $30 = $20

CR=CM/S* 100%

= $20/$50 * 100 = 40%

BreakEven Point:

Unitsx =FC / CM

= $8640/$20 = 432 Units

In $ x =(FC / CM)*S
