Livingston Co. uses process costing to account for the production of elastic bands. Direct materials are added at the beginning of the process and conversion costs are incurred uniformly throughout the process. Beginning inventory consisted of $14,000 in materials and $8,000 in conversion costs. April costs were $72,000 for materials and $80,000 for conversion costs. During April 8,000 units were completed. Ending work in process inventory was 4,000 units (100% complete for materials, 50% for conversion). The total cost per unit using the weighted average method would be:

John and Sally Claussen are considering the purchase of a hardware store from John Duggan. The Claussens anticipate that the store will generate cash flows of $70,000 per year for 20 years. At the end of 20 years, they intend to sell the store for an estimated $400,000. The Claussens will finance the investment with a variable rate mortgage. Interest rates will increase twice during the 20-year life of the mortgage. Accordingly, the Claussens’ desired rate of return on this investment varies as follows: (FV of $1, PV of $1, FVA of $1, PVA of $1, FVAD of $1 and PVAD of $1) (Use appropriate factor(s) from the tables provided.)Years 1-5: 7% Years 6-10: 10%
Years 11-20: 12%
Required: What is the maximum amount the Claussens should pay John Duggan for the hardware store?

Answers

Answer:

Explanation:

Calculate maximum that should pay:

Compute present value of cash flows from the store, year 1 to 5 :

Annual cash flows are $70,000

Desired rate of return on investment for 1 to 5 years is 7%

Number of years is 5

Present value of cash flows generated during 1 to 5 years =

= $287,013.82

Compute present value of cash flows from the store for years 6 to 10

Annual cash flows are $70,000

Desired rate of return on investment for 6 to 10 years is 10%

Desired rate of return on investment for 1 to 5 years is 7%

Number of years is 5

Present value of cash flows generated during 6 to 10 years = annual cash flows x PVIFA (10%,5) x PVIF (7%,5)

= $70,000 x 3.79079 x 0.7130 = $189,198.33

Compute present value of cash flows from the store for years 11 o 20

Annual cash flows are $70,000

Desired rate of return on investment for 11 to 20 years is 12%

Desired rate of return on investment for 6 to 10 years is 10%

Desired rate of return on investment for 1 to 5 years is 7%

Number of years is 10

Present value of cash flows generated during 11 to 20 years = [annual cash flows x PVIFA (12%,10)] x PVIF (10%,5) x PVIF (7%,5)

= $70,000 x 5.65022 x 0.62092 x 0.7130  = $175,100.98

Calculate present value of estimated sale amount to be received for sale of store

Present value of estimted sale amount to be received = [Estimated sale amount x PVIF (12%,10)] x PVIF (10%,5) x PVIF (7%,5)

=$400,000 x 0.32197 x 0.62092 x 0.7130=

=$57,016.50

Calculate total maximum amount that should be paid

Particulars Amount ($)

Present value of cash flows during 1 to 5 years         $287,013.82

Present value of cash flows during 6 to 10 years $189,198.33

Present value of cash flows during 11 to 20 years $175,100.98

Present value of estimated sale value                  $57,016.50

Maximum amount that C should pay to JD for store $708,329.63

Therefore, Maximum amount that should be paid $708,329.63

A company's flexible budget for 10,000 units of production reflects sales of $200,000; variable costs of $40,000; and fixed costs of $75,000. Calculate the expected level of operating income if the company produces and sells 13,000 units. A) $85,000. B) $50,500. C) $133,000. D) $110,500. E) $100,000.

Answers

Answer:

C) $133,000

Explanation:

We have to divide the sales and the variable cost by the unit budgeted

This will be the unit sales price and unit variable cost

200,000/10,000 = 20

40,000/10,000 = 4

Next we do the income statment

Sales Revenue $20 x 13,000 = 260,000

Variable Cost $4 x 13,000= (52,000)

Contribution Margin 208,000

Fixed Cost (75,000)

Operting Income 133,000
