What would be the company’s cost if it decided to shut down operations for the next four months?
If, b/s of a strike, the most the company can produce is 100,000 units, should it shut down? Why or why not?

1 answer

  1. Break-even dollar volume of sales:
    500,000 + 5q = 6q
    q = 500,000/1
    q = 500,000 units

    The company's cost if it decided to shut down operations for the next four months: 500,000

    If the most the company can produce is 100,000 units, it should not shut down. This is because the company would still make a profit of 400,000 (500,000 - 100,000) if it produces 100,000 units. Shutting down would result in a loss of 500,000.
