not certain how to calculate because it says each item sells for 17,000. also, I wouldnt be sure which numbers to graph with

1. A small producer of machine tools wants to move to a larger building, and has identified two
alternatives. Location A has annual fixed costs of \$800,000 and variable costs of \$14,000 per
unit; location B has annual fixed costs of \$920,000 and variable costs of \$13,000 per unit1
.
The finished items sell for \$17,000 each.
A) State the total-cost formula:
B) Calculate a second point for each location: Set a selected quantity = ____ Use q=150 units

C) Sketch the total-cost lines for the locations on a single graph.

Step 1

Given information:

Location A has annual fixed cost =\$800,000

Variable cost=\$14000per unit

Location B has annual fxed cost=\$\$920,000

Variable cost=\$13000 per unit

Finshied iteams sells for \$17000

Step 2

a)State the total cost formula

 Particulars LoctionA LocationB Annual fixed costs \$800000 \$920000 Annual variable costs \$14000perunit \$13000perunit

Finished items sell for \$17000

Then the formula for total cost=Total fixed cost+Total variasble cost

For Location A the total cost=\$800000+\$14000

=\$814000

For Location B the total cost=\$920000+\$13000

=\$933000

Step 3

b)Calculate a second point for each location and set a selected quantity by using q=150units

For location A:

Total cost=\$800000+\$14000X

For location B:

Total cost=\$920000+\$13000X

Here the cross over point would be get by comparing the ...
