Direct labor 20
Overhead (20% variable) 10
Other information:
Sales price 100
SG&A costs (40% variable) 15

a. Assume, for this question only, that the Chip Division is producing and selling at capacity. What is the minimum selling price that the division would consider on a "special order" of 1,000 chips on which no variable period costs would be incurred?

b. Assume, for this question only, that the Chip Division is operating at a level of 70,000 chips per year. What is the minimum price that the division would consider on a "special order" of 1,000 chips to be distributed through normal channels?

c. Assume, for this question only, that the Chip Division is presently operating at a level of 80,000 chips per year. Accepting a "special order" on 2,000 chips at $88 will
