What is the $ amount of monthly sales needed in order to make the desired monthly profit
a)
Break-even point in units = Fixed expenses / Contribution margin per unit |
Break-even point in units = $200,000 / ($10-$8) |
Break-even point in units = 100,000 Units |
b)
Contribution margin ratio = Contribution margin / selling price |
Contribution margin ratio = ($10-$8) / $10 |
Contribution margin ratio = 20% |
c)
Target sales = (Fixed expenses + target profit) / contribution margin ratio |
Target sales = ($200,000+$100,000) / 20% |
Target sales = $1,500,000 |
