Question

The company has idle capacity and is considering the possibility of making the speakers that it needs. Daisuke estimates that the cost of materials and labor needed to make speakers would be a total of $4.50 for each speaker. In addition, supervisory salaries, rent, and other manufacturing costs would be $89,000. Allocated facility-level costs would be $50,000.

Required
