Chapter 2 (2B2)

Given:
Selling price per unit: \$20
Total fixed expenses: \$5,000
Variable expenses per unit: \$15

Find break-even sales in units
Sales-variable expenses-fixed expenses=0
\$20N-\$15N-\$5,000=0
\$5N=\$5,000
N=\$5,000/\$5
N=1, 000 units

2. Given
Sales: \$40,000
Variable expenses: \$30,000
Fixed expenses: 7,500
Net income: 2,500

Find break-even sales in dollars

3. Given
Selling price per unit: \$30
Total fixed expenses: \$33,000
Variable expenses per unit: \$14

Find total sales in units to achieve a profit of \$7,000, assuming no change in selling price.

4. Given
Sales: \$50,000
Variable expenses: \$20,000
Fixed expenses: \$20,000
Net income: \$10,000

Find net income if activity volume increases 10%

5. Given
Selling price per unit: \$40
Total fixed expenses: \$80,000
Variable expenses per unit: \$30

Assume that variable expenses are reduced by 20% per unit, and the total fixed expenses are increased by 10%. Find the sales in units to achieve a profit of \$20,000, assuming no change in selling price.

Calculate:
Turnover= Sales/average total assets
Turnover = 1,250,000/500,000
Turnover = 2.50

Calculate:
Average Total Assets=
ROI = Net Income/Average total assets
15% = 75,000/Average total assets
Average total assets = 500,000

Given: Firm F

ROI=12.6%
Average Total Assets=\$1,730,159
Turnover=1.4
