A company wants to buy a new machine to replace one which is having frequent break-downs. It received offers for two models M1 & M2. Further details regarding these models are given below: Installed capacity (units) Fixed overheads per annum (Rs.) Estimated profit at the above capacity (Rs.) M1= 10,000; M2 =10,000 M1= 2, 40,000 & M2=1, 00,000 M1= 1, 60,000 & M2=1, 00,000

The product manufactured using this type of machine (M1 or M2) is sold at Rs. 100 per unit. You are required to determine: a) Break-even level of sales for each model. b) The level of sales at which both the models will earn same profit. c) The model suitable for different level of demand for the product.

Exercise 10
Shri Shakti Appliance Ltd., an home appliance manufacturer has always sold its product through wholesalers. Last year its sales were Rs. 20, 00,000 yielding a net profit of 10% of Sales.
