Contribution margin is the amount remaining after;variable expenses have been deducted from sales revenue.;fixed expenses have been deducted from sales revenue.;fixed expenses have been deducted from variable expenses.;cost of goods sold has been deducted from sales revenues.;5. The Pohl Company uses a standard cost system in which;manufacturing overhead is applied to units of product on the basis of machine;hours. For June, the company's manufacturing overhead flexible budget showed;the following total budgeted costs at a denominator activity level of 20,000;machine hours;Variable overhead;$26,000;Fixed overhead 30,000;During June, 17,000 machine hours were used to complete;13,000 units of product, and the following actual total overhead costs were;incurred;Variable overhead;$25,330;Fixed overhead 28,820;At standard, each unit of finished product requires 1.4;hours of machine time.;The fixed overhead budget variance for June was;$3,230 F.;$3,230 U.;$1,180 F.;$1,180 U.;6. Newmax Co. is a manufacturing business. When it pays the;workers who assemble its products, the cash account should be decreased and;what account should be increased?;Cost of goods sold;Work-in-process inventory;Manufacturing overhead;Finished goods inventory;7.

If the wheels were purchased from the outside;supplier, $15,000 of annual fixed factory overhead could be avoided.;What is the highest price that Talbot could pay the outside;supplier for the wheel and still be economically indifferent between making or;buying the wheels?;$1.70;$1.15;$1.00;$.80;8. The cost of goods sold in a merchandising firm typically;would be classified as a;variable cost.;fixed cost.;mixed cost.;step-variable cost.;9.

If acquired, Jones will;depreciate the machine using the straight-line method.;Jones? cost of capital is 12%. From present value tables;Jones had identified that the present value factor for an amount of 1;discounted at 12%, is.322, while the present value of a 10 year annuity of 1;discounted at 12%, is 5.65.;Ignoring income taxes, what is the payback period of this;project?;5.0 years;4.5 years;4.4 years;4.0 years;10.

Budgeted;production for July should be;8,800 units.;8,400 units.;8,000 units.;7,200 units.;14. The Collins Company applies overhead to production;orders on the basis of machine hours. At the beginning of 2002, the company;made the following estimates;Estimated Amount;Direct labor cost $100,000;Indirect labor cost 25,000;Advertising expense 30,000;Direct materials 50,000;Indirect materials 10,000;Depreciation on factory equipment 40,000;Machine hours to be worked 10,000;What predetermined overhead rate should Collins Co. use?;$ 3.50;$ 7.50;$ 9.00;$12.00;15. The purpose of a flexible budget is to;reduce the total time in preparing the annual budget.;compare actual and budgeted results at virtually any level;of production.;eliminate cyclical fluctuations in production reports by;ignoring variable costs.;allow management some latitude in meeting goals.;16. Following is information relating to Kew Co.'s Vale;Division for 2001;Sales $500,000;Variable expenses 300,000;Fixed expenses 50,000;Average operating assets 1,000,000;Minimum desired return 12%;What was Vale's residual income?;$120,000;$150,000;$ 30,000;$ 80,000;17.
