problem 1: The Braggs & Struttin' Company manufactures an engine for carpet cleaners called the "Snooper." Budgeted cost and revenue data for the "Snooper" are given below, based on sales of 40,000 units.
Less: COGS 1,120,000.
Gross margin: $480,000.
Less: Operating expenses 100,000.
Cost of goods sold consists of $810,000 of variable costs and $310,000 of fixed costs. Operating expenses consists of $30,000 of variable costs and $70,000 of fixed costs.
A) find out the break-even point in units and sales dollars.
B) find out the safety margin (in dollars).
C) Braggs & Struttin' received an order for 6,000 units at a price of $25.00. There will be no increase in fixed costs, but variable costs will be reduced by $0.54 per unit because of cheaper packaging. Determine the projected increase or decrease in profit from the order, assuming there is no opportunity costs.

Direct labor 480,000
Variable manufacturing overhead 360,000
Fixed manufacturing overhead 600,000
Selling and administrative:
A) Supposing the use of variable costing, compute the cost of Webster's ending finished-goods inventory.
