16. The increase in fixed cost from \$25,000 to \$35,000 will increase the break-even point from 1,250 to 1,750 or 500 dolls, thus, he should not spend the extra \$10,000 for advertising. 17. Original break-even point (from problem) 7 = 1,250 New break-even point: Reduces BE point by 187.5 dolls. v c pc f v = = = 17 000 30 14 1062 5 , . v c f v = = = 35 000 30 10 1 750 , , 18. a) b) c) Revenue for the first 30 days = 30( pv vc v ) = 30[(8.95)(20) – (20)(3.75)] = \$3,120 \$27,000 – 3,120 = \$23,880, portion of fixed cost not recouped after 30 days.
