Unformatted text preview: number of such 5unit packages to break even. Then the contribution margin from this package will be $60 × 3 + $80 × 2 = $340. The breakeven point (X) = $68,000 $340 = 200 packages. This means that a total of 600 Jig Saws (= 3 × 200 units) and 400 Circular Saws (= 2 × 200 units) have to be sold to break even. 2. Since 60 percent Jig Saws and 40 percent Circular Saws constitute the product mix, the weightedaverage contribution margin per unit = .60 × $60 + .40 × $80 = $68. The breakeven point for both products = $68,000 $68 = 1,000 units. Jig Saws must be sold 600 units (= .60 × 1,000 units) and Circular Saws 400 units (= .40 × 1,000 units) to break even....
