4. If fixed costs were to increase to \$169,000, while variable costs declined to \$2.40 per unit, what is the new break-even level of sales? Round your answer to the nearest whole number.

5. If a major proportion of fixed costs were noncash (depreciation), would failure to achieve the break-even level of sales imply that the firm cannot pay its current obligations as they come due? Suppose \$93,000 of the above fixed costs of \$133,000 were depreciation expense. What level of sales would be the cash break-even level of sales? Use the initial variable cost in your calculations. Round your answer to the nearest whole number.
