1. A product sells for \$200 per unit, and its variable costs per unit are \$130. The fixed costs are \$420,000. If the firm wants to earn \$35,000 pretax income, how many units must be sold? (Points : 5)
6,500
500
5,000
200

Units required to earn target pre-tax income of \$35,000 = (\$35,000 + \$420,000)/\$70 = 6,500 units

3. A company’s product sells at \$12 per unit and has a \$5 per unit variable cost. The company’s total fixed costs are \$98,000.The break-even point in units is: (Points : 5)
14,000
7,000
5,187
2,123

\$98,000/\$7 = 14,000 units

4. The contribution margin per unit is equal to the sales price per unit minus the variable costs per unit. (Points : 5)

12.
How does contribution margin differ from gross margin? Give a specific example as part of your explanation.
(Points : 10)
The Contribution Margin is calculated by subtracting Variable Costs from Sales. This is used in Variable Costing where costs are categorized based on the cost behavior; while Gross Margin is calculated by subtracting Cost of Goods Sold from Sales which is used in Absorption Costing where costs are categorized based on function.

13. A product sells for \$30 per unit and has variable costs of \$18 per unit. The fixed costs are \$720,000. If the variable costs per unit were to decrease to \$15 per unit and fixed costs increase to \$900,000, and the selling price does not change, break-even point in units would:

a. current breakeven
b. new breakeven

Show all work to receive full credit (Points : 10)

a)
Contribution Margin = \$30 – \$18
= \$12
BEP = \$720,000 / \$12
= 60,000 units

b)
Contribution Margin = \$30 – \$15
= \$15
BEP = \$900,000 / \$15
= 60,000 units

14. State the difference in cost of goods manufactured between absorption costing and variable costing. As part of your explanation give an example of the statement format difference. (Points : 10)

The main difference between those methods is in the treatment of Fixed Manufacturing Costs; where under Variable Costing, Fixed Manufacturing Costs are not included in Product Costs and are treated as a Period Cost while Under Absorption Costing Fixed Manufacturing Overhead are treated as Product Costs. Hence, under Variable Costing Product Costs consist solely of Variable Production Costs.

The following Income Statements show the difference:

Company A
Income Statement (Variable Costing)
Month Ended April 30, 20xx
Sales revenue (10,000 × \$27) \$270,000
Variable manufacturing costs \$80,000
Variable selling and administrative costs \$20,000 \$100,000
Contribution margin \$170,000
Fixed manufacturing costs \$35,000
Fixed selling and administrative costs \$10,000 \$45,000
Operating income \$125,000

Company A
Income Statement (Absorption Costing)
Month Ended April 30, 20xx
Sales revenue (10,000 × \$27) \$270,000
Cost of goods manufactured \$131,000
Less: Ending inventory (\$22,000)
Cost of Goods Sold \$109,000
Gross Profit \$161,000
Operating expenses:
Variable Selling and administrative cost \$20,000
\$10,000 \$30,000
Operating income \$131,000
