only the answers.
Section 6

1. Enola, Inc. manufactures a product that sells for $400.     The
variable costs per unit are:

Direct materials..............................$100
Direct labor..................................$ 80
Variable manufacturing overhead.............. $ 50
Variable selling costs........................$ 20

For the coming year the budgeted fixed manufacturing overhead is
estimated to be $500,000 and budgeted fixed selling and administrative
costs are expected to be $250,000.
Required:
a. Determine the break-even point in units.
Solution: Total variable cost = $100+$80+$50+$20 = $250 = VC
Total fixed cost = $500,000 + $250,000 = $750,000
Suppose the break even occurs at n units.
Therefore, 400n = 750,000 + 250n
Or (400-250)n = 750,000
Or 150n = 750,000
Therefore, n = 750,000/150 = 5000 units


b. Determine the number of units that must be sold to earn a target net
   income of $300,000.
Solution: Since each unit sells for $400, number of units required to
be sold to earn an income of $300,000 = $300,000/$400 = 750 units



2. Holbrook, Inc. has identified the following overhead costs and cost
drivers for next year.

Overhead.......Expected......Cost.............Expected
Item.............Cost.......Driver............Quantity
------------------------------------------------------
Setup costs....$960,000..Number of setups.......4,800
Ordering costs..160,000..Number of orders......20,000
Maintenance.....640,000..Machine hours.........64,000
Power............80,000..Kilowatt hours...... 200,000

The following are two of the jobs completed during the year.

                         Job 701        Job 702

Prime costs..............$25,000........$18,000
Units completed..............650............500
Direct labor hours...........180............220
Number of setups..............12.............15
Number of orders..............16.............30



                                   1
Machine hours................360............300
Kilowatt hours...............180............650

The company’s normal activity is 40,000 direct labor hours.

Required:
a. Determine the unit cost for each job using direct labor hours to
   supply overhead. (That is overhead rate is based on direct labor
   hours.)
b. Determine the unit cost for each job using the four cost drivers.
   (Round amounts to 2 decimal places.) (That is there are four
    overhead rates: setups, orders, maintenance and power.)
c. Which method produces the more accurate cost assignment? Why?



3. Brentwood Associates uses a job-order costing and applies overhead
on the basis of direct labor hours. At the beginning of the year,
management estimated that 26,000 direct labor hours would be worked
and $1,300,000 of manufacturing overhead costs would be incurred.

During the year, the company actually worked 24,000 direct labor hours
and incurred the following manufacturing costs:

Direct materials used in production.....$1,240,000
Direct labor.............................1,800,000
Indirect labor.............................280,000
Indirect materials.........................220,000
Insurance..................................150,000
Utilities..................................190,000
Repairs & maintenance......................180,000
Depreciation...............................320,000

(Note: So actual overhead is $1,340,000)

Required:
a. Calculate the predetermined overhead application rate (Dollars per
   Direct Labor Hour) for the year.
Solution: The predetermined overhead application rate
= $1,300,000/ 26000 direct labor hours = $50 per direct labor hour

Determine the amount (in dollars) of manufacturing overhead applied to
work in process during the year.
Solution: Overhead applied = predetermined overhead application rate
*Actual activity = $50*24,000 = $1,200,000

Determine the amount (in dollars) of underapplied or overapplied
overhead for the year.
Solution: Underapplied overhead = $1,340,000 - $1,200,000 = $140,000

4. Phil Goode will receive $175,000 in 50 years. (That is at the end of
50 year from today Phi will receive a lump sum of $175,000). His



                                   2
friends are very jealous of him. If the funds are discounted back at a
rate of 14 percent, what is the present value (in dollars) of his
future “pot of gold”? (Note: Your answer is less than $175,000.)
                                                                                                   n

5. If employer offered to set aside $2,500 a year for you for the next
20 years, how much (in dollars) would you have in your account after 20
years if the funds grew at 8 percent? (Note: Your answer is greater
than $2,500.)
Solution: Assuming compound interest,
Amount after 1’st year, A1  P1  0.08   P(1.08)
Principal for second year = P  P(1.08)  P(1  1.08)
Amount after 2’nd year, A2  P1  1.08 1.08   P(1.08  1.08 )
                                                                           2


Principal for 3rd year = P  P(1  1.08 )(1.08 )  P(1  1.08  1.08 )

6. Madison Corporation has a $1,000 par value bond outstanding paying
annual interest of 7%. The bond matures in 20 years. If the present
yield to maturity for this bond is 9%, calculate the current price of
the bond (in dollars) using annual compounding. (That is interest is
paid annually.) (Note: Your answer is less than $1,000.)

7. The Taylor Corporation is using a machine that originally cost
$88,000. The machine is being depreciated by the straight-line method
over 8 years ($11,000 per year). The machine has a book value of
$66,000 and a current market value of $40,000. Assume the machine is
sold at the current market value of $40,000. Jack Elliott, the Chief
Financial Officer of Taylor, is considering replacing this machine with
a newer model costing $75,000. The new machine will save $7,000 in
after-tax earnings each year for the next six years. The new machine is



                                                3
in the 5-year MACRS category. Taylor Corporation is in the 34% tax
bracket. What is the cash inflow (in dollars) from the sale of the old
machine? (Note: You do not have to calculate depreciation expense.)

(Hint: 1. Calculate the gain or loss on sale.
       2. Calculate the tax saving or tax expense.
       3. Calculate the cash inflow or outflow on the sale.
