Break-even point = Q′ - 2,100 = (\$86,500)/ {[((\$86,500/2,100) - \$18)/0.012] - \$18} = 45 units; Q′ = 2,100 + 45 = 2,145 units AACSB: Analytic Blooms: Analyze Difficulty: 2 Medium Learning Objective: 20-02 How to analyze the decision by a firm to grant credit.

Your variable cost on that item is \$156 and your monthly interest rate is 1.75 percent.
Should you grant credit to this customer? Why or why not?
