Janitorial costs are $1,300monthly. Advertising costs for the stereo system will be $8,500 permonth. The factory building depreciation expense is $7,200 peryear. Property taxes on the factory building will be $9,000 peryear.Assuming that Copa manufactures, on average, 1,300 stereosystems per month, Compute the cost to produce one stereosystem?
depreciation = 7,200
property tax = 9,000
total = 33,900/1,300 units per month = 26.o8 per unit
raw material =74.00
worker 12/hr @ 5 hrs per unit = 60.00
total cost per unit = 160.00
