Benefits of sell some goods at a local music festival, Financial Accounting

1. You have decided to sell some goods at a local music festival. You have hired a sales stand for $500. Your cost per item is $3 and you will sell each item for $5. When you did your initial calculations, you expect to sell 300 items and have purchased 500 just to be sure. You can return any un-sold items to the supplier and get your $3 back.

(a) What benefits do you expect?

(b) What costs did you expect?

(c) Suppose that due to rain the prospects look bad and you now only expect to sell 200 items. At this point you have already paid the $500 for the stand, but you can decide not to sell if you want. Would you prefer to not sell now?

(d) What other costs might you have that have not been expressed here? Would they perhaps change your answer to (c)?
