Working notes:

Determine sales.

Number of units to be sold =12,000 units

Selling price per unit =$240 per unit

Sales =(Numberofunitstobesold)×(Sellingpriceperunit)=12,000units×$240perunit=$2,880,000 (1)

Determine the cost of direct materials.

Number of units to be sold =12,000 units

Direct Materials cost per unit =$50 per unit

DirectMaterials =(Numberofunitstobesold)×(DirectMaterialscostperunit)=12,000units×$50perunit=$600,000 (2)

Determine the cost of direct labor.

Number of units to be sold =12,000 units

Direct labor cost per unit =$30 per unit

DirectLabor =(Numberofunitstobesold)×(DirectLaborcostperunit)=12,000units×$30perunit=$360,000 (3)

Determine the cost of factory overhead.

Factory overhead-Fixed =$350,000

Number of units to be sold =12,000 units

Factory overhead-Variable cost per unit =$6 per unit

Factoryoverhead =[Factoryoverhead-Fixedcost]+[(Numberofunitstobesold)×(Factoryoverhead-Variablecostperunit)]=$350,000+[12,000units×$6perunit]=$350,000+$72,000=$422,000 (4)

Determine the sales salaries and commissions
