3. Coakley Beet Processors, Inc., processes sugar beets in batches. A batch of sugar beets
costs $52 to buy from farmers and $14 to crush in the company’s plant. Two intermediate
products, beet fiber and beet juice, emerge from the crushing process. The beet fiber can
be sold as is for $30.00 or processed further for $19.00 to make the end product industrial
fiber that is sold for $39.00. The beet juice can be sold as is for $47.20 or processed
further for $33.04 to make the end product refined sugar that is sold for $78. How much
profit (loss) does the company make by processing the intermediate product beet juice
into refined sugar rather than selling it as is?

The Litton Company has established standards as follows:
Direct material: 3 pounds per unit @ $5.20 per pound = $15.60 per unit

Actual production figures for the past year are given below. The company records the materials price variance when
materials are purchased.
Units produced 1,800 units

18. A customer has requested that Inga Corporation fill a special order for 3,200 units of product K81 for $27 a unit. While the product would be modified slightly for the special order, product K81’s normal unit product cost is $22.10:
Direct materials
$6.00
Direct labor
4.60
Variable manufacturing overhead

Direct labor is a variable cost. The special order would have no effect on the company’s total fixed manufacturing overhead costs. The customer would like modifications made to product K81 that would increase the variable manufacturing costs by $1.50 per unit and that would require an investment of $11,200 in special molds that would have no salvage value. This special order would have no effect on the company’s other sales. The company has ample spare capacity for producing the special order. If the special order is accepted, the company’s overall net operating income would increase (decrease) by:

Variable manufacturing overhead

The regular selling price for one Hom is $135. A special order has been received at Varone from the Fairview Company to purchase 9,500 Homs next year at 15% off the regular selling price. If this special order were accepted, the variable selling expense would be reduced by 25%. However, Varone would have to purchase a specialized machine to engrave the Fairview name on each Hom in the special order. This machine would cost $13,500 and it would have no use after the special order was filled. The total fixed costs, both manufacturing and selling, are constant within the relevant range of 34,500 to 46,000 Homs per year. Assume direct labor is a variable cost. If Varone can expect to sell 32,000 Homs next year through regular channels, at what special order price from Fairview should Varone be economically indifferent between either accepting or not accepting this special order? (Round your answer to two decimal places.)

29. Resendes Refiners, Inc., processes sugar cane that it purchases from farmers. Sugar cane is processed in batches. A batch of sugar cane costs $53 to buy from farmers and $21 to crush in the company’s plant. Two intermediate products, cane fiber and cane juice, emerge from the crushing process. The cane fiber can be sold as is for $31.50 or processed further for $20.75 to make the end product industrial fiber that is sold for $41.75. The cane juice can be sold as is for
$38.00 or processed further for $26.60 to make the end product molasses that is sold for $86. How much profit (loss) does the company make by processing the intermediate product cane juice into molasses rather than selling it as is?
