1. Johnson Realty bought a 2,000-acre island for \$10,000,000 and divided it into 200 equal size lots. As the lots are sold, they are cleared at an average cost of \$5,000. Storm drains and driveways are installed at an average cost of \$8,000 per site. Sales commissions are 10% of selling price. Administrative costs are \$850,000 per year. The average selling price was \$160,000 per lot during 20X5 when 50 lots were sold. During 20X6, the company bought another 2,000-acre island and developed it exactly the same way.
