Problem 22-2A: CVP analysis and charting L.O. P2, P3

Xcite Equipment Co. manufactures and markets a number of rope products. Management is considering the future of Product XT, a special rope for hang gliding, that has not been as profitable as planned. Since Product XT is manufactured and marketed independently of the other products, its total costs can be precisely measured. Next year's plans call for a \$190 selling price per 100 yards of XT rope. Its fixed costs for the year are expected to be \$300,000, up to a maximum capacity of 700,000 yards. Forecasted variable costs are \$170 per 100 yards of XT rope.
