Expert Solution

1.

To determine

Break-even Point: It refers to a point in the level of operations at which a company experiences its revenues generated is equal to its costs incurred. Thus, when a company reaches at its break-even point, it reports neither an income nor a loss from operations. The formula to calculate the break-even point in sales units is as follows:

Break-evenpointinSales(units) =FixedCostsContributionMarginperunit

To compute: the anticipated break-even sales (units).

Explanation of Solution

Compute the anticipated break-even sales (units).

Fixed cost =$480,000 Contribution margin per unit =$40 per unit (1)

Break-evenâ€‰pointâ€‰inâ€‰Sales(units)Â =Fixedâ€‰CostsContributionâ€‰Marginâ€‰perâ€‰unit=$480,000$40â€‰perâ€‰unit=12,000units

Working note:

Determine the contribution margin per unit
