    Variable: Factory labor $ 1.50 per unit
    Fixed: Executive salaries $ 112,000
    Variable: Raw materials $ 0.70 per unit

    Separate the expenses between fixed and variable costs per unit (I have separated the expenses into their classifications, but I need information about the "per unit" calculations). Using this information and the sales price per unit of $6, compute the break-even point
