Mira Mesa Appliances makes and sells kitchen equipment for offices and hotel rooms. Mira Mesa management believes that a new model of refrigerator made out of a synthetic material would sell well at a price of $260 per unit. Labor costs are estimated at$32 per unit and overhead costs would be $24 per unit. The major uncertainty is the price of the synthetic material. Mira Mesa is in negotiations with several suppliers for the material. Because of the risk associated with the new product, Mira Mesa will only proceed if the estimated return is at least 30 percent of the selling price.Required: What is the most Mira Mesa can pay for the synthetic material per unit (refrigerator) and meet its profitability goal? ### Answers Answer:$126

Explanation:

We can calculate the amount Mira can pay for the synthetic material per unit (refrigerator) and meet its profitability goal by deducting the estimated profit and then all the cost from the selling price per unit.

Selling price per unit                                        $260 Less estimated return (260x30%) = ($78)

Labor costs                                                    ($32) Overhead costs ($24)

Material                                                              $126 Amount Mira can pay for Synthetic material per unit is$126

Suppose the economy only produces three goods: bread, laptops, and movies. Calculate the CPI of 2008, using 2004 as the base year.

### Answers

Answer:

Most of the question is missing, so I looked for a similar one and found the attached image.

CPI = (current year price × base year quantity) / (base year price × Base year quantity)

CPI for bread in current year = [($1.50 × 2,000) / ($1 × 2,000)] x 100 = 150

CPI for laptops in current year = [($1,500 × 100) / ($2,000 × 100)] x 100 = 75

CPI for movies in current year = [($7 × 50) / ($5 × 50)] x 100 = 140

CPI for current year = (CPI for bread x weight of bread) + (CPI of laptops x weight of laptops) + (CPI of movies x weight of movies) = (150 x $2,250/$227,530) + (75 x$225,000/$227,530) + (140 x $280/$227,530) = 1.48 + 74.17 + 0.17 =75.82

### Final answer:

To calculate the CPI in 2008 using 2004 as the base year, compare the prices of the three goods (bread, laptops, and movies) in 2008 to their prices in 2004. Multiply the price of each good by the quantity consumed to calculate the cost of the basket in each year. Divide the cost of the basket in 2008 by the cost of the basket in 2004 and multiply by 100 to get the CPI.

### Explanation:

The CPI (Consumer Price Index) measures the change in the prices of a fixed basket of goods and services over time. To calculate the CPI in 2008 using 2004 as the base year, you need to compare the prices of the three goods (bread, laptops, and movies) in 2008 to their prices in 2004. Here's how you can calculate the CPI:

1. Determine the price of each good in 2008 and 2004.
2. Calculate the cost of the basket in 2008 by multiplying the price of each good by the quantity consumed.
3. Calculate the cost of the basket in 2004 by multiplying the price of each good by the quantity consumed.
4. Divide the cost of the basket in 2008 by the cost of the basket in 2004 and multiply by 100 to get the CPI.

For example, if the cost of the basket in 2008 is $100 and the cost of the basket in 2004 is$80, the CPI would be (100/80) * 100 = 125.

It costs $1,200 to produce 50 pounds of a chemical and it costs$2,200 to produce 150 pounds. The chemical sells for $15 per pound x is the amount of chemical; y is in dollars. a. Find the cost function. b. What is the fixed cost? c. How many pounds must be sold to break even? d. Find the cost and revenue at the break-even point. ### Answers Answer: a. C(y) = mx + b y = cost in dollars x = amount of chemical m = per unit variable cost b = fixed cost b. Use High low Method to calculate the Variable cost from the total cost given Variable Cost = ( Highest activity cost - Lowest activity cost ) / ( Highest Number of Units - Lowest Number of Units ) Variable Cost = ($2,200 - $1,200 ) / ( 150 - 50 ) Variable Cost =$1,000 / 100

Variable Cost = $10 per unit Fixed Cost =$2,200 - ( 150 x $10 ) Fixed Cost =$2,200 - $1,500 Fixed Cost =$700

c.

Contribution Per Unit = Price - Variable cost

Contribution Per Unit = $15 -$10

Contribution Per Unit = $5 Break-even point =$700 / $5 Break-even point = 140 Pounds d. Revenue = 140 x$15 = $2,100 Cost = 140 x 10 =$1,400

LO 6.5Under absorption costing, a unit of product includes which costs?direct material, direct labor, and manufacturing overhead
direct material, direct labor, and variable manufacturing overhead
direct material, direct labor, and fixed manufacturing overhead
direct material, direct labor, and all variable manufacturing overhead

### Answers

Answer: direct material, direct labor, and fixed manufacturing overhead

Explanation: In calculating product cost in a manufacturing environment, there are two types of costing namely the variable costing method and absorption costing method.

Under absorption costing, a unit of product includes direct materials, direct labour, variable overheads and all fixed manufacturing overhead.

under this method, all variable cost as well as fixed cost are all included in the cost of a product.

Absorption costing is required by GAAP and so has to be using in preparing the financial accounts.

Under absorption costing, a unit of product includes all production costs, namely direct material, direct labor, and both variable and fixed manufacturing overhead.

Under absorption costing, a unit of product includes all costs that are involved in the manufacturing process. These costs include direct material, direct labor, and both variable and fixed manufacturing overhead. To elaborate, direct materials are the raw materials used in producing the product, direct labor is the hands-on labor involved in production, and manufacturing overhead consists of indirect costs associated with production such as factory rent, utilities and production manager salaries. Both variable and fixed overhead costs should be included, with the former changing with the level of production and the latter remaining constant regardless of the production volume.
