2. The inventoriable (manufacturing) cost per unit for 5,000 flanges is \$3.80 × 5,000 + \$28,000 = \$47,000 Average (unit) cost = \$47,000 ÷ 5,000 units = \$9.40 per unit. This is below Flora ’s selling price of \$ 10 per flange. However, in order to make a profit, Gayle ’s Glassworks also needs to cover the period (non-manufacturing) costs of \$10,000, or \$10,000 ÷ 5,000 = \$2 per unit. Thus total costs, both inventoriable (manufacturing) and period (non-manufacturing), for the flanges is \$9.40 + \$2 = \$11.40. Gayle ’s Glasswork s cannot sell below Flora ’s price o f \$10 and still make a profit on the flanges. Alternatively, At Flora ’s price of \$ 10 per flange: Revenue \$10 × 5,000 = \$50,000 Variable costs \$3.80 × 5,000 = 19,000 Fixed costs 38,000 Operating loss \$ (7,000) Gayle ’s Glassworks cannot sell below \$ 10 per flange and make a profit. At Flora ’s price of \$ 10 per flange, the company has an operating loss of \$7,000.
3. If Gayle ’s Glassworks produces 10,000 units, then total inventoriable cost will be: Variable cost (\$3.80 × 10,000) + fixed manufacturing costs, \$28,000 = total manufacturing costs, \$66,000. Average (unit) inventoriable (manufacturing) cost will be \$66,000 ÷ 10,000 units = \$6.60 per flange Unit total cost including both inventoriable and period costs will be (\$66,000 + \$10,000) ÷ 10,000 = \$7.60 per flange, and Gayle ’s Glassworks will be able to sell the flanges for less than Flora ’s price of \$10 per flange and still make a profit. Alternatively, At Flora ’s price of \$10 per flange: Revenue \$10 × 10,000 = \$100,000 Variable costs \$3.80 × 10,000 = 38,000 Fixed costs 38,000 Operating income \$ 24,000 Gayle ’s Glassworks can sell at a price below \$ 10 per flange and still make a profit. The company earns operating income of \$24,000 at a price of \$10 per flange. The company will earn operating income as long as the price exceeds \$7.60 per flange.
