I am trying to check the book's website to see if they have an excel template for this question
Requirement 1: (a) Assume that Barker Company has sufficient capacity to produce 110,500 Zets each year without any increase in fixed manufacturing overhead costs. The company could increase sales by 30% above the present 85,000 units each year if it were willing to increase the fixed selling expenses by $120,000. Compute the Incremental net operating income. (Omit the "$" sign in your response.) Incremental net operating income $__415500__________
25500*48-27 -120000 = 415500 b) Would the increased fixed selling expenses be justified? A) YES Requirement 2: Assume again that Barker Company has sufficient capacity to produce 110,500 Zets each year. The company has an opportunity to sell 25,500 units in an overseas market. Import duties, foreign permits, and other special costs associated with the order would total $22,950. The only selling costs that would be associated with the order would be $1.50 per unit shipping cost. Compute the per unit break-even price on this order. (Round your answer to 2 decimal places. Omit the "$" sign in your response.)
27+1.5+22950/25500 = 29.4 Break-even price per unit $ 29.4 Requirement 3: One of the materials used in the production of Zets is obtained from a foreign supplier. Civil unrest in the supplier's country has caused a cutoff in material shipments that is expected to last for three months. Barker Company has enough material on hand to operate at 25% of normal levels for the three-month period. As an alternative, the company could close the plant down entirely for the three months. Closing the plant would reduce fixed manufacturing overhead costs by 35% during the three-month period and the fixed selling expenses would continue at two-thirds of their normal level. What would be the impact on profits of closing the plant for the three-month period? (Input the amount as positive value. Omit the "$" sign in your response.)
595000/12*3*.35+382500/12*3*1/3 = 52063+31875 = 83938 total cost saving
Less loss of CM 85000/12*3*.25*48-27 = 111563
Net disadvantage - -27625 Net (advantage/disadvantage) of closing the plant equals?-27625 Requirement 4: The company has 700 Zets on hand that were produced last month and have small blemishes. Due to the blemishes, it will be impossible to sell these units at the normal price. If the company wishes to sell them through regular distribution channels, what unit cost figure is relevant for setting a minimum selling price? (Round your answer to 2 decimal places. Omit the "$" sign in your response.) Relevant cost is $ _27___________ per unit All variable should be covered if the blemish units can be sold for any price more than 27 in the market, otherwise the relevant cost should be $0 as there is no worth of blemish units, therefore whatever is received it should be acceptable.
Requirement 5: An outside manufacturer has offered to produce Zets and ship them directly to Barker's customers. If Barker Company accepts this offer, the facilities that it uses to produce Zets would be idle; however, fixed manufacturing overhead costs would continue at 30%. Since the outside manufacturer would pay for all shipping costs, the variable selling expenses would be reduced by 60%. Compute the unit cost that is relevant for comparison to the price quoted by the outside manufacturer. (Round your answer to 2 decimal places. Omit the "$" sign in your response.)
27+595000*.7/85000-3.7*.6 = 29.68 Quotation must be less than $29.68 per unit. Total Avoidable Unit Cost Equals? 29.68

Thank you for your feedback, but is that fair? You give me a neutral feedback because I helped and saved you from having an incorrect solution?
I have opted out when the other expert has answered cause you had a very tight deadline and I am busy helping other students, I do not think that a neutral feedback is at all fair
