Expert Solution
To determine

Transfer price: The price charged for the goods and services transferred among the divisions is referred to as transfer price.

Approaches for setting transfer prices:

• Market price approach
• Negotiated price approach
• Cost price approach

To determine: The increase in P Division’s and M Division’s income from operations as a result of transfer pricing

Explanation of Solution

Determine the increase in P Division’s income from operations as a result of transfer pricing.

Increase in P Division’s income from operations} = {(Transfer price–Variable cost per unit) × Number of units transferred}($82–$75) × 15,000 units= \$105,000

Note: P Division is the supplying division. So, the supplying or selling division negotiates to sell at a price not less than the variable expenses
