Homework Answers

Answer #1

Break even points in units = Fixed costs / Weighted average contribution margin per unit

Units X to Units Y = 16,000 : 4,000

= 4 : 1 or 0.8 : 0.2

Weighted average contribution margin = (Product X contribution margin per unit * 0.8) + (Product Y contribution margin per unit * 0.2)

Product X contribution margin per unit = Selling price - Variable cost per unit

= $20 - $11

= $9

  Product Y contribution margin per unit = Selling price - Variable cost per unit

= $30 - $16

= $14

Weighted average contribution margin = ($9 * 0.8) + ($14 * 0.2)

= $7.2 + $2.8

= $10

Break even points in units = $110,000 / $10

= 11,000 units

Break even point of Product X = 11,000 * 0.8

= 8,800 units

Break even point of Product Y = 11,000 * 0.2

= 2,200 units
