# What selling price per unit will this company require to earn $3,000 on the order?

What is one advantage and one

disadvantage of using the accounting rate of return to evaluate investment

alternatives?

109.You have evaluated three projects using the net present

value (NPV) method. How would you decide which one of the projects to

select?

110.Identify at least three reasons for managers to favor the

internal rate of return (IRR) over other capital budgeting approaches.

111.For each of the capital budgeting methods listed below,

place an X in the correct column, indicating the measurement basis of each, the

ability to make comparison among projects, and whether each method reflects or ignores

the time value of

money.

112.A company inadvertently

produced 6,000 defective portable CD players. The CD players cost $20 each to

be manufactured. A salvage company will purchase the defective units as they

are for $16 each. The production manager reports that the defects can be

corrected for $9 per unit, enabling the company to sell them at the regular

price of $30.00. The repair operations would not affect other production

operations. Prepare an analysis that shows which action should be taken.

113.A company manufactures two products. Each unit of product

X requires 10 machine hours and each unit of product Y requires 4 machine

hours. The company’s productive capacity is limited to 180,000 machine hours.

Each unit of product X sells for $15 and has variable costs of $7. Each unit of

product Y sells for $8 and has variable costs of $3. If the company can sell

all that it produces of both products, what should the sales mix be?

114.Fleming Company had the

following results of operations for the past

year:

A foreign

company (whose sales will not affect Fleming’s regular sales) offers to buy

2,000 units at $5.00 per unit. In addition to variable manufacturing costs,

there would be shipping costs of $1,200 in total on these units. Should Fleming

take this order? Explain.

115.A company produces three

different products that all require processing on the same machines. There are

only 27,000 machine hours available in each year. Production information for

each product

is:

Required:

(1)

Determine the preferred sales mix if there are no

market constraints on any of the products.

(2)

Determine the preferred sales mix if the demand is

limited to 5,000 units for each product.

(3)

Determine the preferred sales mix if the demand is

limited to 3,000 units for each product.

116.A company puts four products through a common production

process. This process costs $100,000 each year. The four products can be sold

when they emerge from this process at the “split-

off

point”, or processed further and then sold. Data about the four products

for the coming period

are:

Determine which products

should be sold at the split-off point and which should be processed further.

117.A company has just received a special, one-time order for

1,000 units. Producing the order will have no effect on the production and

sales of other units. The buyer’s name will be stamped on each unit, at a total

cost of $2,000. Normal cost data, excluding stamping,
