Your Company makes 35,000 motors to be used in the production of its sewing machines. The cost per motor at this level of activity is:

Direct materials \$4.50

Direct labor \$4.60

An outside supplier has offered to supply all the motors the company needs for \$15 each. If Your Company decides to buy the motors, there would be no other use for the production facilities and 25% of the fixed manufacturing overhead cost could not be avoided. If Your Company decides to buy the motor, what is the change in net income net operating income?

A. \$45,500

B. \$ 14,000

C. (\$45,500)

D. (\$14,000)

Cost of production of motor :

= Direct materials + Direct labor + Variable manufacturing overhead + Fixed manufacturing overhead

= 4.5 + 4.6 + 3.75 + 3.4 = \$ 16.25 per motor

Cost of purchase of motor :

= Purchase cost + unavoidable fixed manufacturing overhead

= 15 + 25%(3.4) = \$ 15.85 per motor

If company decided to purchase motor : net income would be,

= 16.25 - 15.85 = \$ 0.40 per motor

Net income would be = 35,000 motors × \$ 0.40 per motor

= \$ 14,000

Hence, option "B" is correct.
