a)      Break – even –sales – volume

b)      $20,000 sales for the whole year.

c)      $25,000 if the product price increase by $1 and annual fixed cost increases by $ 10,000.


The expected breakeven sales volume

Fixed costs                              =          Fixed costs

Contribution per unit                     selling price- variable price per unit

= $40,000        =          $40,000                       = 10,000 units.

(6-2)                            $4

B) Required revenue contribution = fixed costs + profit target

                        = $40,000 + $20,000 = $ 60,000

So to get the required number of units required to get the profit

Contribution target                  = $60,000        = 15,000 units.

Contribution per unit              $4

D) if the product increases by $1 and the fixed increases by 10,000 and to the targeted profit raises to $ 25,000

$25,000 + $ 40,000+ $ 10,000 = $ 75,000.

So to get the targeted volume for the storage of the expected manufactured goods would be equal to

Contribution target                  = $75,000        = $75,000        = 15,000 units

Contribution per unit              ($7-2)                       $5
