Calculation of Break Even Unit sales of a Company


In 2015, X Company had the following selling price and per-unit variable cost information:

                       Selling price                                       $153.60

                       Direct materials                                    44.60

                       Direct labor                                           27.60

                      Variable overhead                                  25.90

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
