The same raw material is used in all three products. Barlow Company has only 4,000 pounds of raw material on hand and will not be able to obtain any more of it for several weeks due to a strike in its supplier’s plant. Management is trying to decide which product(s) to concentrate on next week in filling its backlog of orders. The material costs \$8 per pound.

Required:

1.
Compute the amount of contribution margin that will be obtained per pound of material used in each product.

2a.
Compute the amount of contribution margin on each product.

2b.
Which orders would you recommend that the company work on next week—the orders for product A, product B, or product C?

3.
A foreign supplier could furnish Barlow with additional stocks of the raw material at a substantial premium over the usual price. If there is unfilled demand for all three products, what is the highest price that Barlow Company should be willing to pay for an additional pound of materials?

4.

Imperial Jewelers is considering a special order for 11 handcrafted gold bracelets to be given as gifts to members of a wedding party. The normal selling price of a gold bracelet is \$401.00 and its unit product cost is \$268.00 as shown below:

Direct materials
\$
143
Direct labor

85
Manufacturing overhead

40

Unit product cost
\$
268

Most of the manufacturing overhead is fixed and unaffected by variations in how much jewelry is produced in any given period. However, \$7 of the overhead is variable with respect   to the number of bracelets produced. The customer who is interested in the special bracelet order would like special filigree applied to the bracelets. This filigree would require additional materials costing \$6 per bracelet and would also require acquisition of a special tool costing \$466 that would have no other use once the special order is completed. This order would have no effect on the company’s regular sales and the order could be fulfilled using the company’s existing capacity without affecting any other order.

Required:

What effect would accepting this order have on the company’s net operating income if a special price of \$361.00 per bracelet is offered for this order? (Enter all amounts as positive values.)

Should the special order be accepted at this price?
