Expert Solution

a)

To determine

Product pricing: Product pricing is the method used for fixing the price for the products sold or the services offered to the consumers.

Product cost pricing: Product cost pricing is a pricing technique which sums up the costs involved in the production of the product alone and the markup is added to the sum.

Product Cost per unit = Total Product CostEstimated Units Produced and sold

Total cost pricing: Total cost pricing is a pricing technique which sums up all the costs involved in the production of the product and the markup is added to the sum.

Total Variable Cost: Total variable cost refers to the costs involved in the production of the product.

Markup Percentage: The markup percentage is the percentage of additional costs added to the product cost to get the selling price of the product.

Markup Percentage = (DesiredProfit) + (Total Selling andAdmininstrative Expenses)Total Product Cost

Selling Price: Selling price is calculated by summing up the product cost per unit and the per unit markup cost

To Determine: The desired profit of Company CD.

Explanation of Solution

Desired Profit: Company CD aims at earning a profit of 15% of the total investment made of $1,500,000.

Calculate the desired profit of Company CD.

Desired profit = 15% of Invested assets= $1,500,000&#
