The primary location being considered will have fixed costs of $9,200 per month and variable costs of 70 cents per unit produced. Each item is sold to retailers at a price that averages 90 cents. a. What volume per month is required in order to break even? b-1. What profit would be realized on a monthly volume of 61,000 units? (Omit the "$" sign in your response.) c. What volume is needed to obtain a profit of $16,000 per month? d. What volume is needed to provide a revenue of $23,000 per month? (Round your answer to the nearest whole number.) Explanation d. Contribution = FC / QBEP, BEP = FC / Contribution, Profit = (Units * Contribution) - FC, FC + Profit / Contribution = units Total Revenue = R × Q, so 13. Award: 5 out of 10.00 points Show my answer Problem 5-6 A real estate agent is considering changing her cell phone plan. There are three plans to choose from, all of which involve a monthly service charge of $20. Plan A has a cost of $.45 a minute for daytime calls and $.20 a minute for evening calls. Plan B has a charge of $.55 a minute for daytime calls and $.15 a minute for evening calls. Plan C has a flat rate of $80 with 200 minutes of calls allowed per month and a charge of $.40 per minute beyond that, day or evening. a. Determine the total charge under each plan for this case: 120 minutes of day calls and 40 minutes of evening calls in a month. (Omit the "$" sign in your response.) c. If the agent will use the service for daytime calls, over what range of call minutes will each plan be optimal? (Round your answer to the nearest whole number.) d. Suppose that the agent expects both daytime and evening calls. At what point (i.e., percentage of call minutes for daytime calls) would she be indifferent between plans A and B? (Round your answer to the nearest whole percent. Omit the "%" sign in your response.) c. Plan A is optimal for zero to less than 178 minutes. Plan C is optimal from 178 minutes or more. Plan B is never optimal. d. Setting these equal and solving, D = 1/2 E. Thus, if E = 100 minutes, then D = 50 minutes. Hence, for 1/3 daytime minutes, the agent would be indifferent between the two plans. 14.

One machine will result in a fixed cost of $2,000 per day, while two machines will result in a fixed cost of $3,800 per day. Variable costs will be $20 per customer, and revenue will be $45 per customer. a. Determine the break-even point for each range. b. If estimated demand is 90 to 120 customers per day, how many machines should be purchased? One machine Explanation: a. R = $45 per customer, VC = $20 per customer b. Since BEP for one machine is 80 and 80 < 90 and BEP for two machines is 152 > 120, we should purchase one machine, because even at the upper limit (120) we have not reached the break-even point associated with two machines.
