    Stool Table
    Selling Price $7.50 $18.00
    Variable Costs $6.00 $15.50

    It takes 1 machine hour to make a stool and 2 machine hours to per table. Total fixed costs for KX corporation amounts to $25,000 annually and would not change under any production modifications. Give this information KX should:
