Problem P8-2A
Variable Cost per unit:
Direct materials \$50
Direct labor \$25
Variable selling and administrative expenses \$18
Total Variable Cost\$113
Fixed cost per unit:
Total Cost ÷ Budgeted Volume = cost per unit
Fixed selling and administrative expenses \$400,000 ÷50000=8 Fixed cost per unit1,000,000\$20
Total unit cost = 113 + 20 = \$133
(a) Desired ROI per unit = (1,200,000 x 0.25) ÷ 50000 = 6 Markup percentage = Desired ROI ÷ Total Unit Cost
= 6÷133
= 4.51%
Target Selling Price = Total Unit Cost + Desired ROI per unit
= 133 + 6
= 139
(b) Variable cost per unit113
Fixed cost per unit (1,000,000 ÷ 40,000) 25
Total unit cost 138
Desired ROI (1,200,000 x 0.25) ÷ 40,0007.50
Target Selling Price 145.50
Markup Percentage = 7.50 ÷ 138
= 5.43%
