Cost per unit \$8.69 and in the mixing machine the budgeted will be \$70, 200.

Explanation:

Since you have all the cost of the different entrances of your product, you need to add them and divide it in the total quantity of units to know the amount of cost per unit.

\$4000 + \$6000 + \$8000 + \$12800 + \$500 = \$31 300

divided the total cost into the number of units: \$31 300 / 3600 units = \$8.69

In the mixing machines, per each machine the gain is \$130 because the company buy each machine in \$90 and sell it into \$220, so the difference is the gain.

In May the proyection is to sell 5200, if the company want to have 15 % in inventory that will be 780 units (5200 x 0.15)

If the company needs to invest \$90 per each unit, so the budget need to be \$90 x 780 units = \$70 200
