Increase in fixed cost will reduce the profit. - k represent margin of safety. Increase in fixed cost will cause the break even point to increase, hence margin of safety will decrease. - f represent break even revenue. Increase in fixed cost will cause the break even revenue to increase - p represent the net loss when volume is equal to zero, hence increase in fixed cost will cause the net loss to increase.Q6C - t represent margin of safety. Increase in fixed cost will cause the break even point to increase, hence margin of safety will decrease.Q7C - increase in profit = increase in contribution = 1400*(20) =$28,000Actual sales volume = 2500 + 800 = 3300Actual contribution = 50000 + 16000 = $66,000Contribution per unit = 66000/3300 = $20.00Q8B(i)quantity discount will lower the variable cost per unit, hence improve c/s ratio.(ii)training program will improve labour efficiency and reduce labour cost per unit, hence improve c/s ratio.(iii)price reduction will reduce the c/s ratio(iv)this allow the company to focus high price market, hence improving c/s ratio(v)lower price could increasse demand but c/s ratio will be lower.Q9ASuperiorStandardBasicContribution per unit550500220Weighted average contribution per unit = (550*20%)+(500*30%)+(220*50%) =$370Break even point (no. of contracts)2,703contractsBreak even revenue:Superior(2703*30%)*1000540,600Standard(2703*30%)*750608,175Basic(2703*50%)*400540,6001,689,375 Closest to $1,690,000Q10BRSTC/S ratio0.60.40.5Current sales revenue mix22.2%33.3%44.4%New sales revenue mix20%50%30%Proportion of product with highest c/s ratio was reduced, hence weighted average c/s ratio will be lower.Q11CIncrease in total fixed cost will move the profit line downward in parallel, hence no change in gradient.Change in selling price and variable cost per unit will change the gradient of the line.
