AE7-2 (a,b) Gruner Company produces golf discs which it normally

Customer Question

AE7-2 (a,b)
Gruner Company produces golf discs which it normally sells to retailers for $7.16 each. The cost of manufacturing 22,400 golf discs is:

Materials $10,752
Labor 34,496
Variable overhead 21,952
Fixed overhead

45,696
Total

$112,896

Gruner also incurs 7% sales commission ($0.50) on each disc sold.

Travis Corporation offers Gruner $4.79 per disc for 4,400 discs. Travis would sell the discs under its own brand name in foreign markets not yet served by Gruner. If Gruner accepts the offer, its fixed overhead will increase from $45,696 to $50,426 due to the purchase of a new imprinting machine. No sales commission will result from the special order.
Prepare an incremental analysis for the special order. (If answer is zero, please enter 0. Do not leave any fields blank. If amount decreases the income, use either a negative sign preceding the number e.g. -45 or parentheses e.g. (45). Enter all amounts in columns "Reject Order" and "Accept Order" as positive amounts and subtract where necessary.)

Hi there, everything is perfect except the Net income Effect on section a. First line which is Revenues is correct, going down in section a everything is correct except Net Income Effect. Net Income at the bottom of a is correct, just need you to relook at Net Income Effect on Materials, Labor, Variable Overhead, Fixed Overhead, and Sales Commission. Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you
Expert:  Manal Elkhoshkhany replied 3 years ago.
The figure for the net income is calculated using the built-in sum formula in excel, it cannot be incorrect. Is that an excel sheet that you have?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
No I am not using an excel spread sheet.
Expert:  Manal Elkhoshkhany replied 3 years ago.
What kind of application are you using to enter the answers?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
It is called Wiley Plus, it is an application within my online course I am taking at Kaplan. The class is Managerial Accounting.They did away with using Excel documents, this is a new method for their accounting class.

you are probably entering the solution in a way that is different from the format required by that software. You said that all numbers are correct, try adding them yourself and you will come with the same figure for net income
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
OMG! LOL! The answers were correct but I didnt put a minus in front of it. I am so sorry, thank you again for your help with this, you have been very helpful. Please feel free to answer anything I have in the future.
