i need help answering these questions by Friday 11/17

1. Marsden manufactures a cat food product called Special Export. Marsden curr

22,000 bags of Special Export on hand. The variable production costs per bag ar

total fixed costs are \$22,000. The cat food can be sold as it is for \$9.0 per bag o

processed further into Prime Cat Food and Feline Surprise at an additional \$3,80

additional processing will yield 22,000 bags of Prime Cat Food and 5,700 bags of

Surprise, which can be sold for \$8.0 and \$6.0 per bag, respectively. The net advantage (incremental income) of processing Special Export further int

Feline Surprise would be: \$206,400

\$3,800

\$12,200

\$210,200

2. Altertech Inc. manufactures a product that contains a circuit board. The company has always purchased this circuit board from

a supplier for \$274.0 each. Altertech recently upgraded its own

manufacturing capabilities and now has enough excess capacity

(including trained workers) to begin manufacturing the circuit

per unit cost projections of making the circuit board, assuming

that overhead is allocated to the part at the normal

predetermined overhead rate of 115% of direct labor cost.

B. Make Beta since the relevant cost to make it is \$56.

C. Buy Beta since the relevant cost to make it is \$48.

D. Make Beta since the relevant cost to make it is \$48. E. Buy Beta since the relevant cost to make it is \$56.

6. A company has the choice of either selling 1,000 defective
