Question

MY NOTES Hasbro has conducted market research and found that setting their price for a Furby at $30 is optimal. The company has fixed costs at $50,000 and it costs $6 per Furby to produce. How many furbies does Harbo need to make to break-even? furbies (round to the nearest whole number)

Answer #1

**Solution :**

The formula for calculating the break even quantity of production is

Break even quantity = Fixed cost / Contribution margin per unit

= Fixed costs / ( Sales price per unit – Variable cost per unit )

As per the information given in the question we have

Variable cost per unit = $ 6 ; Sales price = $ 30 ; Fixed costs = $ 50,000 ;

Applying the above information in the formula we have the break even quantity as

= $ 50,000 / ( $ 30 - $ 6 )

= $ 50,000 / $ 24

= 2,083.33

= 2,083 ( when rounded to the nearest whole number )

**Thus Harbo needs to make 2,083 furbies to break –
even.**

Lets say the company found out they have to produce 140 000
units to break even. We know that variable costs per unit are 8580
dollars and selling price is 16500 dollars, we also know that total
costs per unit are 13200 dollars and we need to find FIXED
COSTS.
Using break even point formula:
BEP = Fixed costs/(revenue per unit - VC per unit) gives us the
fixed costs 1108800000 dollars.
However, dividing this by 140000 gives us 7920...

Remember that your answer will be in “units,” not “dollars,”
as you are finding the number of items that need to be sold in
order to break even.
