ABC does not know the supplier’s specific cost structure for producing this item, but hope to estimate the cost using some information gathered from the supplier.

1. What is the unit production cost for the supplier? If the supplier uses the cost markup pricing model for pricing, what is the markup (in terms of percentage)? What is the profit margin rate (in terms of percentage) if the supplier uses the margin pricing model?
