2. Refer to the original data. Assume again that Polaski Company expects to sell only 40,000 Rets through regular channels next year. The U.S. Army would like to make a one-time-only purchase of 6,000 Rets. The Army would pay a fixed fee of \$1.80 per Ret, and it would reimburse Polaski Company for all costs of production (variable and fixed) associated with the units. Because the army would pick up the Rets with its own trucks, there would be no variable selling expenses associated with this order. If Polaski
Company accepts the order, by how much will profits increase or decrease for the year?
3. Assume the same situation as that described in (2) above, except that the company expects to sell 46,000 Rets through regular channels next year. Thus, accepting the U.S. Army’s order would require giving up regular sales of 6,000 Rets. If the Army’s order is accepted, by how much will profits increase or decrease from what they would be if the 6,000 Rets were sold through regular channels?
