IF a branch does not attain avolume of at least 60,000 transactions during its first year of operations, it is closed. Ifthe demand for services exceeds 90,000 transactions, and additional teller is hired, andthe branch is transferred from the start-up division to regular operations.Requireda.

Determine the amount of teller cost in total and the teller cost per transaction forbranch that processes, 60,000, 70,000, 80,000, or 90,000 transactions.

Each department provides training in a different area as follow:nursing assistant, dental hygiene, and office technology. The schools owner, WilmaVest, wants to know how much it costs to operate each of the three departments. Toaccumulate the total cost for each department, the accountant has identified severalindirect costs that must be allocated to each. These costs are $10,080 of telephoneexpense, $2,016 of supplies expense, $720,000 of office rent, $144,000 of janitorialservices, and $150,000 of salary paid to the dean of students.
