P = 9, AVC = 5, TFC = 2000
Required:
i. BEP in units is Q = TFC/(P - AVC) = 2000/(9 - 5) = 500 units.
TR = 500*9 = shs 4,500
ii. If the company intends to make a profit before tax of 20% of sales, the number of units that must be sold is:
TP = P*Q - TFC - AVC*Q
Q = TFC/(0.8P - AVC)
Q = 2000/(0.8*9 - 5) = 909.1 units
iii. If the tax rate is 30% and the company has a target profit
of 1640 after tax, the number of units that must be sold to earn this target profit is:
Q = (TP/0.7 + TFC)/(P - AVC) = (1640/0.7 + 2000)/4 = 4342/4 = 1085.7
