Answer #1

**Answer**

**A) Contribution Margin** =
**$210,000**

Calculation

**V**ariable **C**osts = Cost of Goods
Sold+Sales Commission+Variable portion of other operating costs

= $225,000+$45,000+$20,000

= **$**290,000

**Contribution Margin** = Net Sales or
**Revenues** from Operations-Total Variable Costs

= $500,000-$290,000

= **$**210,000

**B)** Contribution Margin Percentage =
**42%**

Calculation

**C**ontribution **M**argin
**P**ercentage = [**C**ontribution
**M**argin/Net **Sales** or
revenues]*100

= [**$**210,000/**$**500,000]*100

= **42%**

**C) Operating Profit** = **$23,500 [after
incurring $8,000 additional advertising costs]**

Calculation

Increase in operating income = change in contribution margin-additional advertising costs

= {($500,000*15%)*42%} - $8,000

= 31,500-$8,000

= **$**23,500

So,by additional operating cost(advertising) of $8,000 the
company can be able to make a operating income of
**$23,500**.[when sales too increase by 15%]
