    In each of the cases below, assume that Division X has a product that can be sold either to outside customers or to Division Y of the same company for use in its production process. The manager of the divisions are evaluated based on their divisional profits.

    Case
    A B
    Division X:
    Capacity in units 100,000 100,000
    Number of units being sold to outside customers 100,000 80,000
    Selling price per unit to outside customers $50 $35
    Variable costs per unit $30 $20
    Fixed costs per unit (based on capacity) $8 $6

    Division Y:
    Number of units needed for production 20,000 20,000
    Purchase price per unit now being paid to an outside supplier $47 $34

    Refer to the data in case A above. Assume that $2 per unit in variable selling costs can be avoided on intracompany sales. If the manager are free to negotiate and make decisions on their own, will a transfer take place? If so, within what range will the transfer price fall? Explain.

    Refer to the data used in case B above. In this case, there will be no reduction in variable selling costs on intracompny sales. If the manager are free to negotiate and make decisions on theier own, will a transfer take place? If so, within what range will the transfer price fall? Explain.
