The price charged to regular customers is $0.75 per pack.


Sports Cards Inc. production costs per pack are as follows:


Variable costs Cost
Direct materials $0.14
Direct labour 0.08
Variable overhead 0.13
Fixed overhead 0.25




  1. Assume Sports Cards Inc. has the capacity to handle the order. Prepare an analysis to determine whether Sports Cards Inc. should accept the special order assuming fixed costs would not be affected by this special order.
  2. Now assume that Basketball Hall of Fame want a special hologram on each card which will require Sports Cards Inc. to spend $5,000 to develop it. It will be useless after this special order is completed. Should Sports Cards Inc. accept the special order? What is the minimum price per pack they should charge Basketball Hall of Fame?

Sales $420,000 $300,000 $120,000
Variable expenses 230,000 150,000 80,000

   Total fixed expenses 195,000 125,000 70,000
Operating income(loss) ($5,000) $25,000 ($30,000)




  1. Assume total fixed cost will not change if the company stops making and selling ABC products. Prepare an analysis to show whether the company should drop product ABC. Should the company drop product ABC?  What effect will this have on the current loss?


  1. Now assume the company can avoid $30,000 of the fixed expenses by dropping product ABC (these are direct fixed costs of the product line). Prepare an analysis to show whether the company should drop product ABC. Should the company drop product ABC?  What effect will this have on the current loss?



  1. Now assume that all of the $70,000 of fixed costs assigned to product ABC can be avoided if the product ABC is dropped.

Direct materials $630,000
Direct labour 105,000
Variable overhead 140,000
Fixed overhead 455,000
Total manufacturing costs for 70,000 units $1,330,000


Fiber Systems does not yet know how many switches it will need this year.  However, another company has offered to sell Fiber Systems the switch for $14 per unit.




  1. Assume that if Fiber Systems buys the switch from the outside supplier, the manufacturing facilities that become idle cannot be used for any other purpose. Also assume that none of the fixed costs are avoidable. Should Fiber Systems buy or continue making the switches? Show your analysis.


  1. Now, assume Fiber Systems can avoid $100,000 of fixed costs a year by purchasing outside. In addition because sales are increasing, Fiber Systems needs 75,000 switches a year rather than 70,000.  What should Fiber Systems do now?  Show your analysis.


  1. Given the scenario in #2, what is the highest price Fiber Systems would be willing to pay to purchase the switches from the outside supplier? Show your analysis.
