Compute each of the following:
1. Cost per unit of fixed manufacturing overhead and fixed selling and administrative expenses.
2. Desired ROI per unit.
3. Markup percentage using the absorption cost approach.
4. Markup percentage using the contribution approach.

#### Solution Preview

Cost per unit of fixed manufacturing overhead = fixed manufacturing overhead /number of units= \$250000/2000 =\$125

Cost per unit of fixed selling and administrative expenses = fixed selling and administrative expenses /number of units = \$55000/2000 = \$27.5

Total fixed cost per unit = \$125+\$27.5 = \$152.5

Total variable cost per unit =Direct material + direct labor + variable ...
