Compute the current break-even point in units, and compare it to the break-even point in
units if Mary's ideas are used.

Contribution Margin per Unit = (40-24) = 16
Break even points in form of dollars = 16x 20,000 = 320,000
Break even = (320,000 – 270,000) = $ 50,000/ 320,000 = 15.625%
270,000/16 = 16,875
Current Break-even = 16,875 pair of shoes

Proposed = (24,000+270,000) = 294,000
Margin = 14 x 19,000= 266,000
Break-even = 28,000
28,000/ 266,000 = 1.07%
New Breakeven point = 294,000/ 14 = 21000 units
Compute the margins of safety ratio for current operations and after Mary’s changes are
introduced (Round to nearest full percent)

Current Margin Safety Ratio = (270,000 + (20,000 x24)) = $ 750,000/46,875 = 16%

New Margin Safety Ratio = (266,000 + (24,000 x 24)) = $ 842,000/ 64,679 = 13%

Prepare a CVP (Cost-Volume-Profit) income statement for current operations and after
Mary's changes are introduced
