Molander Corporation is a distributor of a sun umbrella used at resort hotels. Data concerning the next month’s budget appear below:

 Selling price per unit \$ 27 Variable expense per unit \$ 13 Fixed expense per month \$ 11,480 Unit sales per month 970

Required:

1. What is the company’s margin of safety? (Do not round intermediate calculations.)

2. What is the company’s margin of safety as a percentage of its sales? (Round your percentage answer to 2 decimal places (i.e. .1234 should be entered as 12.34).)

Selling price per unit = \$27

Variable expense per unit = \$13

Fixed expense per month = \$11,480

Contribution margin per unit = Selling price per unit - Variable expense per unit

= 27-13

= \$14

Contribution margin ratio = Contribution margin per unit/ Selling price per unit

= 14/27

= 51.8518519%

Break even point ( Sales dollars) = Fixed cost/ Contribution margin ratio

= 11,480/51.8518519%

= \$22,140

1.

Actual sales = Number of units sold x Selling price per unit

= 970 x 27

= \$26,190

Margin of safety = Actual sales - Break even sales

= 26,190-22,140

= \$4,050

2.

Margin of safety (%) = Margin of safety / Actual sales

= 4,050/26,190

= 15.46%
