\$

1a) Variable cost per unit = 6669000/450000 = 14.82 per unit

1b) Contribution margin per unit = 5031000/450000 = 11.18 per unit

1c) Contribution margin ratio = 11.18/26 = 43%

1d) Break even unit = 2871024/11.18 = 256800 Units

1e) Break even sales = 256800*26 = \$6676800

2) Required unit = (2871024+371176)/11.18 = 290000 Units

3) Additional income = 50000*43% = 21500

4a) Margin of safety units = (450000-256800) = 193200 Units

Margin of safety in sales dollars = 193200*26 = \$5023200

5) Degree of operating leverage = Contribution margin/Net income = 5031000/2159976 = 2.3 Times

6) Net income increase percentage = 2.3*10 = 23%

Net operating income = 2159976*1.23 = \$2656770
