A product is currently made in a job shop, where fixed costs are \$20,000 per year and variable cost is \$150 per unit. The firm sells the product for \$175 per unit. What is the break-even point for this operation? What is the profit (or loss) on a demand of 150 units per year?

Given,

fixed costs are \$20,000 per year

variable cost is \$150 per unit.

Selling Price Per Unit \$175 per unit

Demand 150 units per year

Breakeven Point =?

profit (or loss) =?

Workings: Contribution Per Unit = Selling Price-Cost Price

=\$175-\$150=\$25

Break Even Point = Fixed Cost/ Contribution Per Unit

=\$20000/\$25= 800 unit

profit (or loss) = Fixed Cost-Contribution

=\$20000-\$25*150unit= \$16250(Loss)
