Direct labor . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 144,000
Overhead . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 320,000

Administrative expenses . . . . . . . . . 100,000
Total costs and expenses . . . . . . . . \$1,290,000
A new wholesaler has offered to buy 50,000 packages for \$ 5.20 each. These markers would be marketed under the wholesaler’s name and would not affect Jones Products’ sales through its normal channels. A study of the costs of this additional business reveals the following:
Direct materials costs are 100% variable.
Per unit direct labor costs for the additional units would be 50% higher than normal because their production would require overtime pay at one- and- one- half times the usual labor rate.
25% of the normal annual overhead costs are fixed at any production level from 350,000 to 500,000 units. The remaining 75% of the annual overhead cost is variable with volume.
Accepting the new business would increase administrative expenses by a \$ 5,000 fixed amount. Required Prepare a three- column comparative income statement that shows the following:
1. Annual operating income without the special order (column 1).
2. Annual operating income received from the new business only (column 2).
3. Combined annual operating income from normal business and the new business (column 3).
