The Motel Division owns and operates a line of budget motels located along major highways. Each year, the Motel Division purchases furniture for the motel rooms. Currently, it purchases a basic dresser from an outside supplier for $40. The manager of the Furniture Division has approached the manager of the Motel Division about selling dressers to the Motel Division. The full product cost of a dresser is $29.

Jack?s then must decide whether to sell its rough logs (for use in log cabin construction) at split-off or to process them further into refined lumber (for use in regular construction framing). Jack?s normally sells logs for a per-unit price of $500. Alternately, each log can be processed further into 800 feet of lumber at an additional cost of $0.05 per board foot. Also, lumber can be sold for $0.75 per board foot. (Note: One tree is equal to one rough log.)1. What is the total contribution to income from selling the logs for log cabin construction?$2. What is the total contribution to income from processing the logs into lumber?$Determining the Optimal Product Mix with One Constrained ResourceCasual Essentials, Inc. manufactures two types of team shirts, the Homerun and the Goalpost, with unit contribution margins of $7 and $15, respectively. Regardless of type, each team shirt must be fed through a stitching machine to affix the appropriate team logo. The firm leases seven machines that each provide 1,000 hours of machine time per year. Each Homerun shirt requires 6 minutes of machine time, and each Goalpost shirt requires 30 minutes of machine time.Assume that there are no other constraints.If required, round your answers to the nearest whole number. If an amount is zero, enter "0".1. What is the contribution margin per hour of machine time for each type of team shirt?Homerun $Goalpost $2.
