The labor cost was \$30 per pair and material cost was \$20 per pair. The average price of similar shoes in the market is \$200. If the wholesale/retail trade margins together 50%, what should be FLEXO's price at which it will sell its shoes to the wholesale/retail trade?

What would be the break-even quantity at this price? At this price how many shoes will FLEXO have to sell to make profit before tax of \$1,000,000 ? If the variable cost were to change (INCREASE) by 10%, calculate the break-even quantity and the quantity required to achieve the \$1,000,000 profit.
