B) \$140,000.

C) \$220,000.

D) \$190,000. Answer Sales 350,000 – CGS 160,000 = 190,000

B) \$140,000.

C) \$210,000.

D) \$190,000.

5. The contribution margin of Evans Retail Stores, Inc. for the first quarter is:

A) \$300,000.

B) \$140,000. Answer B Sales 350,000 – CGS (variable) 160,000 – Var Sell and Adm 35,000

– Var Adm 15,000 = 140,000

C) \$210,000.

D) \$190,000.

6. The total contribution margin decreases if sales volume remains the same and:

A) fixed expenses increase.

B) fixed expenses decrease.

C) variable expense per unit increases. Answer

D) variable expense per unit decreases.

7. A company has provided the following data:

Sales 3,000 units

Sales price \$70 per unit

Variable cost \$50 per unit

Fixed cost \$25,000

If the sales volume decreases by 25%, the variable cost per unit increases by 15%, and all other factors remain the same, net income will:

A) decrease by \$31,875.

B) decrease by \$15,000.

C) increase by \$20,625.

D) decrease by \$3,125.

A Orig data CM 20.00 X 3000 = 60,000 – FC 25,000 = NI 35,000

New scenario CM 12.50 X 2250 = 28,125 – FC 25,000 = NI 3,125

Decrease of 31,875

8. Wallace, Inc., prepared the following budgeted data based on a sales forecast of \$6,000,000:
Variable Fixed

Direct materials \$1,600,000

Direct labor 1,400,000

Selling expenses 240,000 360,000

Total \$3,900,000 \$1,400,000

A) \$2,250,000

B) \$3,500,000

C) \$4,000,000

D) \$5,300,000

C BEP Sales = Fixed Exp/CM ratio = 1,400,000/.35 (2,100.000/6,000,000) =

4,000,000

9. The following information pertains to Rica Company:

Sales (50,000 units) \$1,000,000

Manufacturing costs:

Variable 340,000

Fixed 70,000

Variable 10,000

Fixed 60,000

How much is Rica's break-even point in number of units?

A) 9,848
B) 10,000
C) 18,571
D) 26,000

Answer: B BEP Units = Fixed Exp/Unit CM ratio = 130,000 / 13.00 = 10,000 130,000 = Fixed Manu of 60,000 + Fixed selling and adm of 70,000 The 13.00 unit cm margin is calculated by dividing sales and var costs by 50,000.
