CVP Accounting problem - Hi. I'm stuck on the 3rd part of this accounting problem. Please see the attached file. Thanks!
Basic CVP Computation problem: CollegePak Company produced and sold 60,000 backpacks during the year just ended at an average price of $20 per unit. Variable manufacturing costs were $8 per unit, and variable marketing costs were $4 per unit sold. Fixed costs amounted to $180,000 for manufacturing and $72,000 for marketing. There was no year-end work-in-process inventory. (Ignore income taxes.) 1. Compute CollegePak’s break-even point in sales dollars for the year. Fixed expenses / unit contribution margin = Break-even point ($180,000 + $72,000) / ($20 - $12) = 31,500 X $20 = $630,000 $252,000 / $8 = $31,500 X $20 = $630,000 CORRECT 2. CollegePak’s variable manufacturing costs are expected to increase by 10 percent in the coming year. Compute the firm’s break-even point in sales dollars for the coming year. (Do not round intermediate calculations.) Expenses: $180,000 + 72,000 = $252,000 $252,000 / $7.20 = $35,000 X $20 = $700,000 CORRECT 3. If CollegePak’s variable manufacturing costs do increase by 10 percent, compute the selling price that would yield the same contribution-margin ratio in the coming year.
