Question

Smythe Corporation sells televisions at an average price of $850 and they come with a standard one-year warranty. The company also offers each customer a separate three-year extended warranty contract for $90 that requires the company to perform periodic services and replace defective parts. The extended warranty begins one year after the purchase date. During 2011, the company sold 300 televisions and 270 extended warranty contracts for cash. Company records indicate that warranty costs in the first year after purchase average $25 per set: $15 for parts and $10 for labour.
