Hamby Company has a unit selling price of \$400, variable costs per unit of \$260, and fixed costs of \$210,000. Compute the break-even point in units using (a) the mathematical equation and (b) contribution margin per unit.
(a) Breakeven point using mathematical equation units

(b) Breakeven point using contribution margin per unit units

For Markowis Company, variable costs are 70% of sales, and fixed costs are \$210,000. Management's net income goal is \$60,000. Compute the required sales needed to achieve management's target net income of \$60,000. (Use the mathematical equation approach.)

Lynn Company had \$150,000 of net income in 2008 when the selling price per unit was \$150, the variable costs per unit were \$90, and the fixed costs were \$570,000. Management expects per unit data and total fixed costs to remain the same in 2009. The president of Lynn Company is under pressure from stockholders to increase net income by \$60,000 in 2009.

Compute the number of units sold in 2008.

Hamby Company has a unit selling price of \$400, variable costs per unit of \$260, and fixed costs of \$210,000. Compute the break-even point in units using (a) the mathematical equation and (b) contribution margin per unit.
(a) Breakeven point using mathematical equation units

(b) Breakeven point using contribution margin per unit units

a) Sales = Variable Costs + Fixed Costs
\$400X = \$260X + \$210,000
\$140X = \$210,000
X = 1,500 units
b) Contribution margin per unit = ...
