The territorial product sales are as follows:
The direct fixed costs of mowers ($50,000) and trimmers ($150,000) are not identifiable with either of the two territories. The common fixed costs are partially identifiable with East Territory, West Territory, and the general administration as follows:

West Territory ................................ 36,000
General administration....................... 30,000
Total common fixed costs ................. $120,000
Required:
