  1. 1. Marginal Costing – Assignment I <br />Q.1 X Ltd., manufacturers only pens where the marginal cost of each pen is Rs. 3. It has fixed costs of Rs. 25,000 per annum. Present production and sales of pens is 50,000 units and selling price per pen is Rs. 5. Any sale beyond 50,000 pens is possible only if the company reduces 20% of its current selling price.<br />However, the reduced price applies only to the additional units. The company wants a target profit of Rs. 1,00,000. How many pens to company must produce and sell if the target profit is to be achieved?<br />Q.2 From the following data, calculate break-even point (BEP):<br />Selling price per unitRs. 20Variable cost per unitRs. 15Fixed overheadsRs. 20,000<br />If sales are 20% above BEP, determine the net profit.<br />Q.3 If fixed costs are Rs. 4,000 variable costs Rs. 32,000 and break-even point Rs. 20,000, find: (i) Profit-volume ratio; (ii) Sales; (iii) Net profit; (iv) Margin of safety.<br />Q.4 (i) Ascertain profit, when sales= Rs. 2,00,000<br />Fixed Cost= Rs. 40,000<br />BEP= Rs. 1,60,000<br /> (ii) Ascertain sales, when fixed cost= Rs. 20,000<br />Profit= Rs. 10,000<br />BEP= Rs. 40,000<br />Q.5 From the following data, compute break-even sales and margin of safety:<br />SalesRs. 10,00,000Fixed costRs. 3,00,000ProfitRs. 2,00,000<br />Q.6 X Ltd. produces a single article.
