Break-Even and Demand Analysis:

Break-even point for the new line of guitars if the retail price is \$349
To determine the break-even output for the line of guitars, information that include the fixed operating cost and the variable cost per unit are needed. The formula that may be used to compute the break-even output is as follows:
QB = F/ (P - V) (Keown et al., 2002)
Where QB = Break-even output
P =unit sales price
F = fixed operating cost
V = the unit variable cost
Hence, in the case at hand, to compute the break- even output, variable cost per unit (V) and fixed operating cost (F) must be provided.
On the assumption that Fixed operating ...
