Accounting Quiz Three Problems




Question;Q1.Masse Corporation uses part G18 in one of its products. The company's Accounting Department reports the following costs of producing the 16,800 units of the part that are needed every year. Per Unit Direct materials $4.00 Direct labor $4.70 Variable overhead $7.70 Supervisor's salary $8.40 Depreciation of special equipment $9.00 Allocated general overhead $6.00 ________________________________________An outside supplier has offered to make the part and sell it to the company for $33.00 each. If this offer is accepted, the supervisor's salary and all of the variable costs, including direct labor, can be avoided. The special equipment used to make the part was purchased many years ago and has no salvage value or other use. The allocated general overhead represents fixed costs of the entire company. If the outside supplier's offer were accepted, only $22,800 of these allocated general overhead costs would be avoided. In addition, the space used to produce part G18 could be used to make more of one of the company's other products, generating an additional segment margin of $30,000 per year for that product.Required:a. Calculate the effect on the company's total net operating income of buying part G18 from the supplier rather than continuing to make it inside the company. (Input the amount as a positive value. Omit the "$" sign in your response.) Net operating income would be by $.b. Which alternative should the company choose?Make BuyQ2.Jumonville Company produces a single product. The cost of producing and selling a single unit of this product at the company's normal activity level of 81,000 units per month is as follows: Direct materials $ 27.70 Direct labor $ 5.40 Variable manufacturing overhead $ 3.00 Fixed manufacturing overhead $ 12.20 Variable selling & administrative expense $ 2.60 Fixed selling & administrative expense $ 10.20 ________________________________________The normal selling price of the product is $57.80 per unit.An order has been received from an overseas customer for 3,100 units to be delivered this month at a special discounted price. This order would have no effect on the company's normal sales and would not change the total amount of the company's fixed costs. The variable selling and administrative expense would be $1.80 less per unit on this order than on normal sales.Direct labor is a variable cost in this company.Required:a. Suppose there is ample idle capacity to produce the units required by the overseas customer and the special discounted price on the special order is $52.30 per unit. By how much would this special order increase (decrease) the company's net operating income for the month? (Input the amount as a positive value. Round your intermediate calculations to 2 decimal places and final answer to the nearest dollar amount. Omit the "$" sign in your response.) in net operating income $ b. Suppose the company is already operating at capacity when the special order is received from the overseas customer. What would be the opportunity cost of each unit delivered to the overseas customer? (Round your intermediate and final answers to 2 decimal places. Omit the "$" sign in your response.) Opportunity cost $ c. Suppose there is not enough idle capacity to produce all of the units for the overseas customer and accepting the special order would require cutting back on production of 700 units for regular customers.
