Problem Set 2, Part 2
Complete the following problems using the following ratios:
Sales level at which operating income is zero
o If sales above breakeven, then profit
o If sales below breakeven, then loss
o Fixed expenses = total contribution margin
Total sales = total expenses
Break Even Point: Unit Sold = Fixed expenses + Operating Income / Contribution Margin per unit
Break Even Point: Sales \$ = Fixed expenses + Operating Income / Contribution Margin Ratio
(1) Calculate the break even number of units if the fixed expenses are \$7,000 and the contribution margin is \$14 per unit.
(2) Calculate the break even sales dollars if the fixed expenses are \$7,000 and the contribution ratio is 40%.
(3) Calculate the break even number of units with a target profit of \$120,000 if the fixed expenses are \$15,000 and the contribution margin is \$60 per unit.
