1. Drake Manufacturing sells a number of goods whose selling price is heavily influenced by cost. A recent study of product no. 520 revealed a traditionally-derived total cost of $1,623 and a selling price of $1,850 based on that figure. A newly computed activity-based total cost is $1,215. Which of the following statements is true? Answer -All other things being equal, Drake should consider increasing its sales price. -Drake should increase the product's selling price to maintain the same markup percentage. -Product no. 520 could be labeled as being overcosted by Drake's traditional costing procedures. -If product no. 520 is undercosted by traditional accounting procedures, then all of Drake's other products must be undercosted as well. -Generally speaking, the activity-based cost figure is "less accurate" than the traditionally-derived cost figure.
