## (d) Operating profit given 80000 units sold

32000000

(e) Target volume in units if the company is to make an operating profit of 25000000 for the year
66000

(f) Target volume in units if the company is to make 16250000 for the year, net of tax. (Tax Rate = 35%

Exercise 2
Contribution Margin 15000
Fixed Cost 12000000
Sales Profit Margin 10%

## (a) Volume to be sold to achieve total sales of 108000000

Net Profit (pi) 10800000
1520

(b) What is the price per unit of the computers at the level of sales in (a)?
71,052.63

## (c) What is the variable cost per units?

pi+F=(P-V)X
pi+F=PX-VX
VX=PX-pi-F
V=(PX-pi-F)/X
56,052.63
(d) What is the number of units to be sold if the sales profit margin is 20% instead of 10%?
21600000
2240

Exercise 3
Using the data from Exercise 1
(a) The impact on operating profit if sales price decreased by 10%
Sales Price 750
New Sales Price (-10%) 675
Total Fixed Costs 8000000
Total Variable Costs 15000000
Volume (units) 60000
Operating Profit 17,500,000.00

(b) The impact on operating profit if variable cost per unit decreases by 10%
Variable Cost 250
New Variable Cost (-10%) 225
Total Fixed Costs 8000000
Total Sales Revenue 45000000
Volume (units) 60000
Operating Profit 23,500,000.00

(c) The impact on operating profit if fixed costs were 10% lower while variable costs per unit were 20%
Variable Cost 250
New Variable Cost (+20%) 300
Fixed Cost 8000000
New Fixed Cost 7200000
Total Sales Revenue 45000000
Volume (units) 60000
Operating Profit 19,800,000.00

(d) Suppose that the company can only produce 50000 units (instead of 60000) but still wants to achi
Increase the selling price or lower the variable costs or fixed costs. =selling price has the

(a) What is the expected level of operating profits for the expected sales volumes?
Operating Profit 2,350,000.00
(b) What is the break-even point if only A are sold? If only product B are sold?
If product A only 157894.7368421
If product B only 150000

(c) Assuming the same product mix at the break-even point, compute the break-even point for each p
pi = (P-V)A + (P-V)B - F
A=3B
9.5A+10B=1500000 B 38961.04
A 116883.1

Company A - Higher Fixed Costs - higher operating leverage -> good for higher sales level
Cost structure depends on expected sales levels

Fixed Cost 1000
Target Operating Income = just add target income in the Fixed Costs in the denominator
