GNB 12e Practice Exam – Appendix A 1. Is the following statement true or false? Explain. “When target costing is used to determine the selling price of a product, a target profit per unit is added to the actual unit cost to determine the selling price.” The statement, “When target costing is used to determine the selling price of a product, a target profit per unit is added to the actual unit cost to determine the selling price,” is false. When target cost is used to determine the selling price of a product, management estimates what a new product’s market price is likely to be based on its anticipated features and prices of products already on the market. They subtract desired profit from the estimated market price to arrive at the product’s target cost. The design and development team is then given the responsibility of ensuring that the actual cost of the product does not exceed that target cost.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
