Kalifo Company manufactures a line of electric garden tools that are sold in general harware stores. The company’s
controller, Sylvia Harlow, has just received the sales forecast for the coming year for Kalifo’s three products:
weeders, hedge clippers, and leaf blowers. Kalifo has experienced considerable variations in sales volumes and
variable costs over the past two years, and Harlow believes that forecast should be carefully evaluated from a
cost-volume-profit viewpoint. The preliminary budget information for 20X8 is presented below.

Unit selling price, €/un. 28 36 48
Variable manufacturing cost per unit, €/un. 13,90 12,90 26,35
