    The company sold
    60,000 bats at a selling price of $50 a bat. The company had the following costs related to the
    production of 80,000 bats.

    Direct Materials $800,000

    Variable Overhead $250,000
    Fixed Overhead $200,000

    Variable Selling/Admin $250,000
    Fixed Selling/Admin $200,000

    1) Calculate the unit COGS under both absorption and variable costing.

    2) Prepare an Income Statement under both absorption and variable costing.

    If you could show me how the calculations are done, so I may learn this. Thank you so much!
