Q3. Suppose Ahmad company produces and sells 800 units for SR20. Variable manufacturing cost per unit is SR10. Total fixed manufacturing costs (up to the maximum capacity of 1000 units) are SR3,000. Variable operating cost is SR1 per unit and fixed operating costs total $1000.
A customer placed a special order for 150 units for $15 each. The customer is willing to shoulder the delivery costs. So the business will not incur additional variable operating costs. Does the quantitative and qualitative analysis suggest that the company should accept the special order?
