Question 15:

Tullius Corporation has received a request for a special

order of 8,000 units of product C64 for $50.00 each. The

normal selling price of this product is $53.25 each, but

the units would need to be modified slightly for the customer.

The normal unit product cost of product C64 is computed as follows:

Direct materials $18.10

Direct labor 7.40

Variable manufacturing overhead 5.20

Fixed manufacturing overhead 4.80

Unit product cost $35.50

Direct labor is a variable cost. The special order would have no effect on the company’s total fixed manufacturing overhead costs.

The customer would like some modifications made to product

C64 that would increase the variable costs by $5.00 per unit and that would require a one-time investment of $43,000 in special molds that would have no salvage value. This special order would have no effect on the company’s other sales. The company has ample spare capacity for producing the special order.


How much is the “effect” (incremental net operating income) on the company’s total net operating income through accepting the special order?

Question 16:

(Ignore income taxes in this problem.) Hinck Corporation is investigating automating a process by purchasing a new machine for $520,000 that would have an 8 year useful life and no salvage value. By automating the process, the company would save $134,000 per year in cash operating costs. The company’s current equipment would be sold for scrap now, yielding $22,000. The annual depreciation on the new machine would be $65,000.


What is the simple rate of return on the investment to the nearest tenth of a percent?

Question 17:

(Ignore income taxes in this problem.) Schaad Corporation has entered into an 8 year lease for a piece

of equipment. The annual payment under the lease will be $2,500, with payments being made at the beginning of each year.
