Ocean City Kite Company sells kites for \$11.50 per kite. In FY 2019, total fixed costs are expected to be \$185,000 and variable costs are estimated at \$3.00 a unit. Ocean City Kite Company wants to have a FY 2019 operating income of \$80,000. Use this information to determine the number of units of kites that Ocean City Kite Company must sell in FY 2019 to meet this goal. (Round your answer to a whole number)

Solution: According to the question

Selling price per unit = \$11.50

Variable cost per unit = \$3.00

Contribution per unit = Selling price per unit - Variable cost per unit

= \$11.50 - \$3.00 = \$8.50

Total Fixed Costs = \$185,000

Target operating income = \$80,000

Number of units to be sold to earn target operating income

= (Fixed Costs + Target operating income) / Contribution per unit

= (\$185,000 + \$80,000) / \$8.50

= \$265,000 / \$8.50 = 31,176.47 units (rounded to 31,176 units)
