Assume that Cane normally produces and sells 94,000 Betas per year. What is the financial advantage (disadvantage) of discontinuing the Beta product line?Cane Company manufactures two products called Alpha and Beta that sell for \$140 and \$100, respectively. Each product uses only one type of raw material that costs \$8 per pound. The company has the capacity to annually produce 106,000 units of each product. Its average cost per unit for each product at this level of activity are given below:

 Direct materials \$ 32 \$ 16 Direct labor 24 19 Variable manufacturing overhead 10 9 Traceable fixed manufacturing overhead 20 22 Variable selling expenses 16 12 Common fixed expenses 19 14 Total cost per unit \$ 121 \$ 92

Assume that Cane normally produces and sells 44,000 Betas per year. What is the financial advantage (disadvantage) of discontinuing the Beta product line? Assume that Cane normally produces and sells 64,000 Betas and 84,000 Alphas per year. If Cane discontinues the Beta product line, its sales representatives could increase sales of Alpha by 19,000 units. What is the financial advantage (disadvantage) of discontinuing the Beta product line?Assume that Cane expects to produce and sell 84,000 Alphas during the current year. A supplier has offered to manufacture and deliver 84,000 Alphas to Cane for a price of \$96 per unit. What is the financial advantage (disadvantage) of buying 84,000 units from the supplier instead of making those units?Assume that Cane expects to produce and sell 54,000 Alphas during the current year. A supplier has offered to manufacture and deliver 54,000 Alphas to Cane for a price of \$96 per unit. What is the financial advantage (disadvantage) of buying 54,000 units from the supplier instead of making those units?What contribution margin per pound of raw material is earned by each of the two products?ume that Cane’s customers would buy a maximum of 84,000 units of Alpha and 64,000 units of Beta.
