The average selling price for each mirror is $80 per unit.

The material cost for each mirror is $20. The labor cost to produce each mirror is $13 with the additional carriable cost of manufacturing at $15 per unit. The fixed cost of manufacturing operations is $10 Million per year. Assume that FX has a tax rate of 25%. Also, assume that FX uses a MARR of 10% for all economic analysis.
