TC= $3,000 + $2.8Q.


In the second scale of operation, total costs are


TC = $5,000 +$2.4Q.


a. What is the break-even level of output for each scale of operation?

b. what will be the firms profits for each scale of operation is sales reach 5,000 units?

c. One-half of the fixed costs are noncash (depreciation). All other expenses are for cash. If sales are 2,000 units, will cash receipts cover cash expenses for each scale of operation?

d. the anticipated levels of sales are the following:


year     Unit sales

1          4,000

2          5,000

3          6,000

4          7,000


If management selects the scale of production with higher fixed cost, what can it expect in years 1 and 2? On what grounds can management justify selecting this scale of operation? If sales reach on 5,000 a year, was the correct scale of operation chosen ?


3  A firm has the following total revenue and total cost schedules:


TR = $2Q.

TC = $4,000 + $1.5Q.


a. What is the break-even level of output? What is the level of profits at sales of 9,000 units?

b. As the results of a major technological breakthrough, the total cost schedule is changed for


TC=$6,000 + $0.5Q

4. the manufacturer of a product that has a variable cost of $2.50 per unit and total fixed cost of $125,000 wants to determine the level of output necessary to avoid losses.


a. What level of sales is necessary to break even if the product is sold for $4.25? What will be the manufacturer’s profit or loss on the sales of 100,000 units?


b. If fixed costs rise to $175,000, what is the new level of sales necessary to break even?


c. if variable costs decline to $2.25 per unit, what is the new level of  sales necessary to break even?

d. If fixed costs were to increase to $175,000, while variable costs declined to $2.25 per unit, what is the new break-even level of sales?


e. If a  major proportion of fixed costs were noncash(depreciation), would failure to achieve the break-even of sales imply that the firm cannot pay its current obligations as they come due? Suppose $100,000 of the above fixed costs of $125,000 were depreciation expense. What level of sales would be the cash break-even level of sales?
