1. compute the break-even point in dollar sales for year 2011.(round your intermediate calculations to 2 decimal places and final answer to nearest dollar amount)

2. computer the predicted break-even point in dollar sales for year 2012 assuming the machine is installed and there is no change in the unit sales price.(round your intermediate calculations to 2 decimal places and final answer to nearest dollar amount.)

3. prepare a forecasted contribution margin income statement for 2012 that show the expected results with the machine installed. assume that the unit sales price and the number of units sold (19,600 units) will not change, and no income taxes will be due.

5. prepare a forecasted contribution margin income statement that show the result at the sales level computed in part 4. assume an income tax rate of 30%(use the units in your answer from part 4 in your calculation of sales and variable cost. your net income might be higher than required amount due to rounding. input all amounts as positive values. round your answers to the nearest dollar amount.)
