    Burtis Company produces a number of products. In 2002, the selling price of Product A, whose sales are normally 10,000 units per year, was calculated as follows:
    Unit Costs
    Direct Material Costs.............................$ 4.00
    Direct labor costs.................................. 7.00
    Overhead costs..................................... 4.80
    Selling and administrative costs................. 3.50

    Profit (10% of full cost)........................... 1.93
    Selling price........................................$21.23
