Fixed manufacturing costs were $24,000 and fixed selling and administrative costs were $6,000. What would be the difference in Harold Corporationrsquos Net income for 2010 if they used direct costing instead of absorption costing? 1. $4,000 less 2. $6,000 less 3. No difference 4. $2,000 greater Carter Co. sells two products, Arks and Bins. Last year Carter sold 14,000 units of Arks and 56,000 units of Bins. Related data are: Product Unit Selling Price Unit Variable Cost Unit Contribution Margin Arks $120 $80 $40 Bins 80 60 20 What was Carter Co.39s weighted average unit contribution margin? 1. $20 2. $92 3. $24 4. $60 If employees accept a wage contract that decreases the unit contribution margin, the break-even point will decrease. 1. True 2. False The adoption of variable costing for managerial decision making is based on the premise that fixed factory overhead costs are related to productive capacity of the manufacturing plant and are normally not affected by the number of units produced. 1. False 2. True If sales total $2,000,000, fixed costs total $800,000, and variable costs are 60% of sales, the contribution margin ratio is 40%. 1. True 2. False If employees accept a wage contract that increases the unit contribution margin, the break-even point will decrease. 1. True 2. False Selling price = $80 per unit Variable cost = $30 per unit Units = 20,000 Fixed costs = $240,000 This company is considering a 20% drop in selling price that they believe will raise units sold by 20%. All other costs stay the same. How much will income go up or down if they make this change? 1. $320,000 less income 2. $20,000 more income 3. $40,000 more income 4. $184,000 less income If sales are $820,000, variable costs are 58% of sales, and operating income is $260,000, what is the contribution margin ratio? 1. 53.1% 2. 62% 3. 32% 4. 42% The contribution margin ratio is: 1. the same as the profit-volume ratio 2. the portion of equity contributed by the stockholders 3. the same as the variable cost ratio 4. the same as profit If sales are $400,000, variable costs are 80% of sales, and operating income is $40,000, what is the operating leverage? 1. 1.333 2. 7.500 3. 2.0 4. 0 Even if a business sells six products, it is possible to estimate the break-even point. 1. True 2. False A low operating leverage is normal for highly automated industries. 1. True 2. False Given the following cost and activity observations for Smithson Companyrsquos utilities, use the high-low method to calculate Smithsonrsquos fixed costs per month. Round variable cost per unit to two decimal places in your calculations. Cost Machine Hours January $52,200 20,000 February 75,000 29,000 March 57,000 22,000 April 64,000 24,500 1. $12,500 2. $50,000 3. $5,000 4. $1,630 Safari Co. sells two products, Orks and Zins. Last year Safari sold 21,000 units of Orks and 14,000 units of Zins. Related data are: Product Unit Selling Price Unit Variable Cost Unit Contribution Margin Orks $120 $80 $40 Zins 80 60 20 What was Safarirsquos Co.rsquos weighted average unit selling price? 1. $200 2. $80 3. $120 4. $104 If sales are $500,000, variable costs are 75% of sales, and operating income is $50,000, what is the operating leverage? 1. 2.2 2. 2.5 3. 1.25 4. 0 If the volume of sales is $6,000,000 and sales at the break-even point amount to $4,800,000, the margin of safety is 25%. 1. False 2. True If sales are $914,000, variable costs are $514,800, and operating income is $260,000, what is the contribution margin ratio? 1. 64% 2. 33% 3. 53.1% 4. 43.7% When the fixed costs are $120,000 and the contribution margin is $20, the break-even point is 1. 8,000 units 2. 16,000 units 3. 6,000 units 4. 7,998 units Because variable costs are assumed to change in direct proportion to changes in the activity level, the graph of the variable costs when plotted against the activity level appears as a circle. 1. True 2. False If fixed costs are $1,400,000, the unit selling price is $240, and the unit variable costs are $110, what is the amount of sales required to realize an operating income of $200,000? 1. 10,769 units 2. 12,000 units 3. 1,538 units 4. 12,308 units
