1. a.) Contribution per CD unit:

Unit Selling – Variable Costs
$9.00 – 1.25 - .35 – 1.00 = $6.40

$6.40

b.) Break-even volume in CD units and dollars:

($275,000 + 250,000) / 6.40 = 82,032 units

82,032 * $9.00 = $738,288 to break even

c.) Net profit if 1 million CD's sold:

1,000,000 * 6.40 = 6,400,000

6,400,000 – 525,000 = $5,875,000

d.) Necessary CD unit volume to achieve $200,000 profit

6.40 (x) - $525,000 = 200,000

x = 113,282 units needed

2. a.) Unit contribution and contribution margin:

$20 – 4.00 - .50 - .50 = $15 unit contribution

$15 / 20 = 75 % contribution margin

b.) Break-even point in units? In dollars?

$15 (x) – 125,000 – 5,000 – 10,000 – 35,000 = 0
11,667 units are needed

11,667 * $20 = $233,340 dollars needed

so it will be sold to wholesalers at $.45 per can

b.)Contribution per unit

$.50 - .18 - .06 = $.26 per unit

c.)Break-even unit volume per unit

$.26 (x) – 300,000 – 250,000 – 90,000 = 0 ????

d.)First year break-even share of market
