each unit transferred to B. Other data follow:
A’s variable cost per unit $ 30
A’s fixed costs $ 10,000

increase its sales to outsiders. From the perspective of the company as a whole, from whom should Division
B acquire the units, assuming A’s market is unaffected?
a. Outside vendors.
b. Division A, but only at the variable cost per unit.

frames, which it sells to a variety of manufacturers of recliners, including the Recliner Division of Comfort
Company. WoodCraft budgets it 2006 sales to independent customers at 40,000 frames at a unit selling price
of $480. Recliner plans to buy 10,000 frames from the WoodCraft Division in 2006 at a transfer price of
$396 per frame. WoodCraft wants to increase the price of the part it sells to Chair by $84 to $480. The
manager of Recliner has stated that it cannot afford a price that high, because that would cause the Recliner's
