Question details

We are evaluating a project that costs $848,000, has an eight-year life, and has no salvage value. Assume that depreciation is straight-line to zero over the life of the project. Sales are projected at 62,000 units per year. Price per unit is $40, variable cost per unit is $20, and fixed costs are $636,000 per year. The tax rate is 35 percent, and we require a return of 20 percent on this project.

a. Calculate the accounting break-even point. (Do not round intermediate calculations and round your answer to the nearest whole number, e.g., 32.)

b-2
What is the sensitivity of NPV to changes in the sales figure? (Do not round intermediate calculations and round your answer to 3 decimal places, e.g., 32.161.)

ΔNPV/ΔQ          $  

b-3 Calculate the change in NPV if sales were to drop by 500 units. (Enter your answer as a positive number. Do not round intermediate calculations and round your answer to 2 decimal places, e.g., 32.16.)
