Required

1. Sales at past trade shows have ranged between 400 and 600 software packages per show. Determine the average cost of sales per unit if Ms. Jekyll sells 400, 450, 500, 550, or 600 units of Abacus at a trade show. Use the following chart to organize your answer. Is the cost of booth space fixed or variable?

2. If Ms. Jekyll wants to earn a $55 profit on each package of software she sells at a trade show, what price must she charge at sales volumes of 400, 450, 500, 550, or 600 units? 3. Record the total cost of booth space if Ms. Jekyll attends one, two, three, four, or five trade shows. Is the cost of booth space fixed or variable relative to the number of shows attended? 4. Ms. Jekyll provides decorative shopping bags to customers who purchase software packages. Some customers take the bags; others do not. Some customers stuff more than one software package into a single bag. The number of bags varies in relation to the number of units sold, but the relationship is not proportional. Assume that Ms. Jekyll uses$34 of bags for every 52 software packages sold. What is the additional cost per unit sold? Is the cost fixed or variable?
