Using the contribution margin income statement format prepare:

1. A schedule that shows income at the following amounts of production: 350,000; 390,000; 450,000 and 500,000#.

2. Assume that the relevant range holds for production levels at this range of activity.

3. Include the impact of taxes on income at each level of activity. In other words, show income before and after taxes in the schedule.
