Answer #2

Before answering the questions below, compute the following for each flavor:

Chocolate | Vanilla | Strawberry | |
---|---|---|---|

Contribution margin | 5.25-2.75 = 2.50 | 5.25-3.75 = 1.50 | 5.25-3.95 = 1.30 |

Sales mix (%) | 2/5 | 2/5 | 1/5 |

Weighted avg. CM | 1 | 0.60 | 0.26 |

a. Assuming the sales mix remains constant, how many total gallons of ice cream must be sold to break even?

= 55056/1.86 = 29600 Gallons

b. How many gallons of strawberry ice cream will be sold at the break-even point?

29600*1/5 = 5920 Gallons

c. What will total revenue equal at the break-even point?

= 29600*5.25= $155400
