    Cost Machine Hours
    May $8,300 15,000
    June 10,400 20,000
    July 7,200 12,000
    August 9,500 18,000

    $10.00
    $.60
    $.40
    $.52

    24. If fixed costs are $500,000 and the unit contribution margin is $40, what is the break-even point if fixed costs are increased by $80,000?
    14,500
    12,500
    8,333
    9,667

    25. If fixed costs are $490,000, the unit selling price is $35, and the unit variable costs are $20, what is the break-even sales (units) if fixed costs are reduced by $40,000?
    32,667 units
    14,000 units
    30,000 units
    24,500 units

    26. If fixed costs are $39,600, the unit selling price is $42, and the variable costs are $24, what is the break-even sales (unit) if the variable costs are decreased by $2?
    1,650
    990
    1,980
    1,350

    27. Assume that Crowley Co. sold 8,000 units of Product A and 2,000 units of Product B during the past year. The unit contribution margins for Products A and B are $20 and $45 respectively. Crowley has fixed costs of $350,000. The break-even point in units is _______.
    14,000 units
    25,278 units
    8,000 units
    10,769 units
