    B. Calculation used to determine Marginal Revenue The marginal revenue is the change in total revenue resulting from selling one more unit of output. If marginal revenue is greater than marginal cost then total revenue would be increased. If marginal cost is greater than marginal revenue, it would then decrease. Furthermore, if both marginal revenue and marginal cost are equal, it would remain constant. In this given scenario, we can calculate the…

    A: Marginal revenue is the change made in total revenue a company makes caused by an additional item being produced. This is calculated by figuring the difference between the revenue produced both before and after a single unit increase in the production rate. If the price of a product is constant, the marginal revenue and price are the same. Sometimes an additional item will only sell if the price goes down and that leads to the consideration of marginal cost or the cost of producing one more item. If marginal cost exceeds marginal revenue, further production is not recommended since it would result in a loss. If marginal revenue exceeds marginal cost, then the production of an additional unit would be advised since it would result in an increase in profit.…

    Hallstead Jewelers 1.) Break-even ticket sales increased from 4533 in 2003, to 4998 in 2004 and 7491 in 2006. Break-even point in Sales Dollars has changed from $7,285 in 2003, to $7,617 in 2004 and $11,634 in 2006. (Table 1) The margin of safety has changed from $1,298 in 2003, to $485 in 2004, and a loss of $923 in 2006. (Table 2) There is a decrease from 2003 to 2006. Fixed cost per month attributed to stores relocation and subsequent renovations caused a decrease from 2003 to 2006. Other factors contributing to the 2003-2006 decrease are as follows: • 1% increase in Cost of Goods Sold (COGS) totaling $81,000 • Decrease in sales of $481,000 • Increase in salaries totaling $60,000 • Increase in miscellaneous expenses of $40,000. (Table 3) 2.) If prices were reduced by 10 percent, Hallstead’s total income would decrease to $1,111. This would change the break-even point for ticket sales to 9,637, and significantly change the overall sales figure to $13,473 (Table 4). 3.) Gretchen’s idea would effectively eliminate sales commissions. This would reduce sales volume by 1,143. This would decrease ticket sales to 8,494 and compromise the break-even. Sales dollars would reduce by $1,598 to $11,875 (Table 4). 4.) Michaela’s suggestion to increase advertising by $200,000 is sound: The increase accounts for 2% of sales and 4% of 2006 sales. Both figures are comparatively low for a retail business. This increase would change the break-even point from 7,491 to 7,790 ticket sales (Table 5). 5.) If fixed costs remained static from 2006 to 2007, average sales ticket would have to increase from $1,553 to $1,690 in order to break-even. (Table 6). List of recommendations for Hallstead Jewelers are as follows: Evaluate the number of sales staff needed and consider reducing the number of FTE’s and/or PTE’s. When reducing staff and/or operating, make sure that the best sales associates are receiving the number of hours they desire and then allocating the remaining…
