1. Sporto Enterprises is considering the manufacture of a new type of golf ball. Each golf ball would sell for \$3.75 and would require \$1.75 in variable costs. In addition, annual fixed costs associated with the project would total \$64,000.
Calculate: (a) the breakeven point in units
Selling price (S) \$ 3.75
Variable cost (V) \$ 1.75
Fixed cost (FC) \$ 64,000
BEP = FC/(S-V) 32,000 units

(b) the breakeven point in dollars,
Selling price (S) \$ 3.75
Variable cost (V) \$ 1.75
Fixed cost (FC) \$ 64,000
BEP = FC/(1-V/S) \$ 120,000

(c) the operating income or loss at a sales volume of \$112,500
Profit = Sales Volume*(1-V/S) - FC \$ -4,000 (negative sign indicates loss)
Since sales volume is less ...

#### Solution Summary

The solution solves three problems on break even analysis and variable cost.
