Expert Solution

1.

To determine

Cost-Volume-Profit Analysis: It is a method followed to analyze the relationship between the sales, costs, and the related profit or loss at various levels of units sold. In other words, it shows the effect of the changes in the cost and the sales volume on the operating income of the company.

To construct: a cost-volume-profit chart indicating the break-even sales for last year.

Explanation of Solution

Construct a cost-volume-profit chart indicating the break-even sales for last year.

Figure (1)

The volume in units of sales is shown on the horizontal axis. The maximum relevant range is 2,500 units. The sales and the total costs (fixed cost and variable cost) in dollars is shown on the vertical axis. The maximum relevant range of sales and total costs is $700,000.

The total sales line is drawn right upward by connecting the first point at $0 to the second point at $625,000 [2,500units×$250perunit] for 2,500 units sold (maximum relevant range on the horizontal axis)
