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. Qualitative factors C. Quantitative factors D. Variable costs E. Sunk Costs 2. When are fixed costs relevant in a make or buy decision? A. Fixed costs are never relevant to such a decision. B. Fixed costs are always relevant to such a decision. C. Fixed costs are relevant only when they exceed variable costs. D. Fixed costs are relevant when they differ among alternatives. 3. A particular product line is most likely to be dropped when: A. its total fixed costs are more than its contribution margin. B. its avoidable fixed costs are more than its contribution margin. C. its unavoidable fixed costs are more than its contribution margin. D. its variable costs are more than its fixed costs. E. its variable costs are less than its fixed costs. As avoidable FC go down, net income goes up. As CM goes down, net income goes down. If the avoidable FC > decrease in CM, there will be a net increase in net income. Example: With the unprofitable product line Get rid of product line and its FC* CM \$400 ---- FC (500) ---- Net Inc (100) ---- *I’m assuming all the FC are avoidable.
