 Direct materials \$ 1.70 Direct labor \$ 4.00 Variable manufacturing overhead \$ 0.80 Fixed manufacturing overhead \$ 3.45 Variable selling and administrative expenses \$ 1.70 Fixed selling and administrative expenses \$ 3.00

The normal selling price is \$20.00 per unit. The company’s capacity is 115,200 units per year. An order has been received from a mail-order house for 1,000 units at a special price of \$17.00 per unit. This order would not affect regular sales or the company’s total fixed costs.
