REQUIRED
Prepare a contribution margin income statement and calculate operating leverage.

2. Suppose the company is unsure exactly how many units they will sell. As such, their marketing department has provided a worst case scenario where sales would be 1,500 units and a best case scenario where sales would be 2,700 units. Assume that the selling price per unit, variable cost per unit and fixed costs will remain constant (per part 1).

Rules regarding the completion of the Excel Assignments:
NOTE: You MUST use Microsoft EXCEL and not any other spreadsheet program.

1) You MUST use the Excel Templates provided on the Accounting 1020 website for this quarter.

2) You MUST download the Excel Templates using YOUR account from the Accounting 1020 website. Each template is individually coded to prevent academic dishonesty. Any student found using the template from another student’s account AND the student that allows another student to use his/her account will also receive a zero on the assignment and be subject to further penalties for academic dishonesty.

3) You MUST sign the academic honesty pledge or you will automatically receive a zero--NO EXCEPTIONS!

4) You MUST use formulas and links whenever possible. If you simply type in your solutions rather than use formulas, you will receive a zero.

5) You MUST name your Excel files per the instruction sheet (LastNameFirstNameExcel2). Failure to name your Excel file correctly will result in a zero--NO EXCEPTIONS. Please make sure that there are no blank spaces in the file name (e.g., SmithJohnExcel2)

6) Your Instructor will inform you how to send your assignments electronically. Failure to follow YOUR INSTRUCTOR’S INSTRUCTIONS will result in a grade of zero for the assignment (note that each instructor may have his/her own required method of turning in the assignment).
