b.
Answer;
a. Weighted Average Contribution per unit = Total Contribution / Total Cost
= 220 / 10
= 22 Per unit
Product  Contribution  Sales Mix(4:6)  Total contribution 
X  40  4  160 
Y  10  6  60 
Total  10  220 
b. Overall Break Even Point = Overall Fixed Cost / Overall weighted average contribution per unit
= 185000 / 22
= 8409 units
Product X = 8409 * 4 / 10 = 3364 Units
Product Y = 8409 * 6 / 10 = 5045 Units
c. Sales = (Fixed cost + Profit) / Contribution per unit
= (185000 + 185000) / 22
= 16818 units
Product X = 16818 * 4 / 10 = 6728 Units
Product Y = 16818 * 6 / 10 = 10090 Units
Sales of product X = 6728 * 80 = 538240
Sales of product Y = 10090 * 30 = 302700
Overall sales = 538240 + 302700
= 840940
