Accounting


Alice Oritz is the advertising manager for Value Shoe Store. She is currently working on a major promotional campaign. Her ideas include the installation of a new lighting system and increased display space that will add $25,830 in fixed costs to the $262,605 currently spent. In addition, Alice is proposing that a 10./0 price decrease ($35 to $31.50) will produce a 20% increase in sales volume (20,500 to 24,600). Variable costs will remain at $14 per pair of shoes. Management are impressed with Alice's ideas but are concerned about the effects that these changes will have on the break-even point and the margin of safety.

b) Calculate the margin of safety ratio for current operations and after Alice's changes are introduced. 
c)Prepare CVP income statements for current operations and after Alice's changes are introduced.
