1. Han Products manufactures 30,000 units of part S-6 each year for use on its production line. At this level of activity, the cost per unit for part S-6 is as follows:
Direct materials \$ 3.60
Direct labor 10.00
Total cost per part \$25.00

An outside supplier has offered to sell 30,000 units of part S-6 each year to Han Products for \$21 per part. If Han Products accepts this offer, the facilities now being used to manufacture part S-6 could be rented to another company at an annual rental of \$80,000. However, Han Products has determined that two-thirds of the fixed manufacturing overhead being applied to part S-6 would continue even if part S-6 were purchased from the outside supplier. Prepare computations showing how much profits will increase or decrease if the outside supplier's offer is accepted.
