    2-B2 Basic CVP Exercises

    Each problem is unrelated to the others.

    1. Given: Selling price per unit, $20; total fixed expenses, $5,000; variable expenses per unit, $15.
    Find break-even sales in units.

    2. Given: Sales, $40,000; variable expenses, $30,000; fixed expenses, $7,500; net income, $2,500.
    Find break-even sales in dollars.

    3. Given: Selling price per unit, $30; total fixed expenses, $33,000; variable expenses per unit, $14.
    Find total sales in units to achieve a profit of $7,000, assuming no change in selling price.

    4. Given: Sales, $50,000; variable expenses, $20,000; fixed expenses, $20,000; net income,
    $10,000. Assume no change in selling price; find net income if activity volume increases 10%.

    5. Given: Selling price per unit, $40; total fixed expenses, $80,000; variable expenses per unit, $30.
    Assume that variable expenses are reduced by 20% per unit, and the total fixed expenses are increased by 10%. Find the sales in units to achieve a profit of $20,000, assuming no change in selling price.

    1. Given: Selling price per unit, $20; total fixed expenses, $5,000; variable expenses per unit, $15.
    Find break-even sales in units.

    Break even Sales in Units = Fixed costs/Contribution margin per unit
    =5000/(20-15)
    1,000 planes

    Note: Contribution margin per unit= Sales price per unit-Variable cost per unit

    2. Given: Sales, $40,000; variable expenses, $30,000; fixed expenses, $7,500; net ...
