To determine

Compute the net income for the previous year.

### Explanation of Solution

Net income: The bottom line of income statement which is the result of excess of earnings from operations (revenues) over the costs incurred for earning revenues (expenses) is referred to as net income.

Compute the net income for the previous year:

 For the previous year Particulars Amount ($) Sales (1)$3,220,000 Less: Variable cost (2) $1,127,000 Contribution margin$2,093,000 Less: Fixed cost $1,255,800 Operating income$837,200 Less: Income taxes (3) $209,300 Net income$627,900

Table (1)

The net income for the previous year is $627,900. Working Note (1): Compute the value of sales: Sales=Unit Cost × Number of units sold 2. To determine Compute the break-even in sales revenue. 3. To determine Compute the number of units to be sold to generate the before-tax operating income of$900,000.

4.

To determine

Compute the number of units to be sold to generate the after-tax income of $650,000. 5. To determine Compute the number of units to be sold to generate the after-tax income of$650,000, if the tax rate increases.
