The cost per hoodie is: Material $10 Thread $1 Decals – design $2 Packaging $1 Shipping $5 The artist who creates the designs on the hoodies is paid $8,000 annually. The other annual costs are: Taxes and Insurance $15,000 Utilities $30,100 Rent $131,000 Miscellaneous Overhead Expenses $52,500 Management Salary $200,000 Each worker costs $25,000 per annum in salary and benefits. The following production is possible: No. Of Workers 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 No. Of Hoodies that can be made 0 6500 15,000 20,000 33,500 42,500 48,000 47,000 1. Using all this information complete the following table and answer the questions. It would be easier if you set this up in an Excel spreadsheet. When you are done, you must submit it as a Word document with your answers.You will use this table to answer questions 2 and 3. (4 marks) Your first step is to identify which are fixed costs and which are variable costs. If you will have to keep paying the cost whether you produce 0 units of the product or 10,000 units, then it is a fixed cost. In the short run you have to keep paying it. In the long run you may be able to change these fixed costs. A variable cost changes based on how much of the product you produce. But the variable costs may not change all at the same time. # of workers Q TVC AVC AFC TC ATC TVC / Q FC / Q FC + VC TC/Q 0 0 1 6500 2 15000 3 20000 4 33500 5 42500 6 48000 7 47000 MC ?TC /?Q 2.

You may be losing money in the short run but you are losing less money.(1 mark) 4. If the price per hoodie were fixed at $30, what would you do? Remember, in the short run you can’t alter fixed costs, you can just decide where to set the level of production. Your costs, # of workers, and quantities are the same as you have already calculated, so when filling in these tables for Q 4, 5, 6 and 7, use the same costs. You just need to calculate total revenue and profit or loss as you are given the average revenue. Remember that you have to keep paying your fixed costs in the short run.
