Questions attached in word document 1. Koufax Company had sales in 2010 of $1,500,000 on 60,000 units. Variable costs totaled $720,000, and fixed costs totaled $550,000. A new raw material is available that will decrease the variable costs per unit by 20% (or $2.40). However, to process the new raw material, fixed operating costs will increase by $50,000.

The marketing department expects that this sales price reduction will result in a 10% increase in the number of units sold. Instructions Prepare a CVP income statement for 2010, assuming the changes are made as described. 2. City Electronix sells television sets and DVD players.
