Dwould be the correct answer to this problem

232, 255 dollar sales FPCC need to have at manufacturer's prices before it starts making a profit.


Lets start with calculation of Variable cost that includes following

Cloth per shirt = 2.2

Button per shirt = 0,05

Thread per shirt = 0.05

Direct labor per shirt = 1.33

Shipping per shirt = 0.27

Adding all these above cost we get per unit varibale cost = 3.9

Manufacturing sales price = 15/140*100 = 10.7

Now calculating sales = 10.7-3.9 = 6.8

Now calculating break even in order to determine point of profitable

Break even = FV/ contribution per unit = 147,600/ 6.8 = 21,706 units

Sales in dollars = 21,706 * 10.7 =232, 255 aprox

Do you know the answer?
