Acc 200 Take-home Quiz Chapter 7 Solution Remember: Fixed costs do not change unless you are told otherwise in a problem. This assignment consists of both multiple choice and short problems. MULTIPLE CHOICE: (10 pts each) 1. Which of the following would not be a factor in the consideration of whether or not a special order should be accepted? A. Excess capacity B. Variable costs C. Sunk Costs D. Qualitative factors E. Quantitative factors 2. Quinton Products manufactures digital cameras. Currently, the company manufactures its own carrying case for the cameras at the following unit costs when 9,000 cases are manufactured each year: Direct materials $2.00 Direct labor $2.00 Variable overhead $1.00 Fixed overhead $1.00 Another manufacturer has offered to supply Quinton with the case at a cost of $6.00 each. If Quinton accepts the offer, what will be the short-term impact on net income. Relevant costs to make the case themselves = $ 5 Relevant costs to buy the case 6 Incremental Net Cost per Case to Buy (1) X number cases each year X 9,000 cases Decrease in net income ($9,000) Since we were not told otherwise, the fixed costs per case would not go away if we outsourced. Therefore, fixed costs of $1.00 per case are not relevant to the decision.

    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.
