Question

"You're killing me!" exclaimed Myles Werntz, product manager for Premium products. "All along I've been told that the Premium line costs the company $125; we charge $225 and make a $100 profit. Now you're saying that costs have increased to $200. That's crazy."

Required

Consider what kinds of cost were included in the $125 amount and what kinds of cost are likely to be included in the $200 amount.
