The BonMatin Corporation produces all types of bowling balls. The Bowling Ball Division is currently producing 3,750 bowling balls per year with a capacity of 5,200. The variable costs assigned to each bowling ball are $576 and annual fixed costs of the division are $878,500. The bowling balls sell for $1,100. The Regal Bowling Ball Division wants to buy 1,450 bowling balls at $525 for its custom bowling ball business. The Home Bowling Ball manager refused the order because the price is below variable cost. The Regal manager argues that the order should be accepted because it will lower the fixed cost per bowling ball from $234.27 to $168.94 and will take the division to full capacity, thus making operations more efficient.
