    Domino Company's management wants to determine if Division B should be eliminated. The following data are available (in thousands):

    Contribution Margin Income Statement
    Division A Division B Division C Total

    Sales $800 $800 $1,200 $2,800
    Less variable costs 560 500 720 1,780
    Contribution margin $240 $300 $ 480 $1,020
    Less direct fixed costs 140 340 240 720
    Segment margin $100 ($ 40) $240 $ 300
    Less common fixed costs 180
    Operating income $120

    A. Assuming all direct fixed costs of Division B are avoidable (traceable), what would be the change in operating income if Division B were eliminated?
    B. Assuming one-half of the direct fixed costs of Division B are avoidable, what would be the change in operating income if Division B were eliminated?
    C. If Division A's sales increase $80,000, the over all company net income will be?
    D. If a promotional program at Division A costing $25,000 increases sales by $80,000, Should they go with the promotional program?

    A. Assuming all direct fixed costs of Division B are avoidable (traceable), what would be the change in operating income if Division B were eliminated?

    If Division B is eliminated and that all direct fixed costs of Division B are
    avoidable, there would not be sales, variable costs, and direct fixed costs included in the calculation. Common fixed costs remain the same.
