Chapter 10: Pricing Study Questions 1. Do problems 1 and 2 under “Marketing By the Numbers” on page 308 of the textbook. a. Problem 1 asks for two price calculations; each is labeled a “markup”, but they are based on selling prices so according to the class terminology, both are margin calculations (Margin = (Price-Variable Cost)/Price. As such: a.i. $150 – $150*.4 = $150 - $60 = $90 a.ii. $90 – $90*.15 = $76.50. b. Problem 2 is a break-even (BE = Fixed Costs / (Unit Price – Unit Variable Costs). As such: b.i. $200,000 / ($76.50 - $40) = $200,000 / $36.50 = 5,480 (round up on BE) . b.ii. To solve the section question, we can think of the $800,000 profit as additional fixed costs b.ii.1. ($200,000 + $800,000) / $36.50 = 27,398 (always round up on BE) . 2. Answer Questions 1 and 2 under “Discussing and Applying the Concepts” on page 307 in the textbook. a.
