Carlsbad Enterprises has a capacity to produce 380,000 computer cases per year. The company is currently producing and selling 300,000 cases per year at a selling price of $403 per case. The cost of producing and selling one case follows:


Variable manufacturing costs $ 160
Fixed manufacturing costs 40
Variable selling and administrative costs 84
Fixed selling and administrative costs 18

Total costs $ 302


The company has received a special order for 40,000 cases at a price of $250 per case. Because it does not have to pay a sales commission on the special order, the variable selling and administrative costs would be only $50 per case. The special order would have no effect on total fixed costs. The company has rejected the offer based on the following computations:
Selling price per case $ 250
Variable manufacturing costs 160
Fixed manufacturing costs 40
Variable selling and administrative costs 50
Fixed selling and administrative costs 18

Net loss per case $ (18 )
