Expert Solution
To determine

Differential Analysis: Differential analysis refers to the analysis of differential revenue that could be gained or differential cost that could be incurred from the available alternative options of business.

To Prepare: The differential analysis to decide whether to reject or accept the special order.

### Explanation of Solution

A company has two alternatives either to reject an order or to accept an order to sell the Product A at a special price of $7.20 per unit. The variable cost in production comes around$5 per unit and export charges come up to 15% of selling price, $1.08 per unit. It clearly shows a profit of$1.12 per unit if the order is accepted; hence the order should be accepted.

Working Note:

Calculate the export tariff per unit for Product A.

ExportÂ tariffÂ Â =Â \$7
