# Differential Analysis for a Discontinued Product Assignment

Differential Analysis for a Discontinued Product

A condensed income statement by product line for Healthy Beverage Inc. indicated the following for Fruit Cola for the past year:

 Sales \$237,100 Cost of goods sold 111,000 Gross profit \$126,100 Operating expenses 146,000 Loss from operations \$(19,900)

It is estimated that 15% of the cost of goods sold represents fixed factory overhead costs and that 22% of the operating expenses are fixed. Because Fruit Cola is only one of many products, the fixed costs will not be materially affected if the product is discontinued.

a. Prepare a differential analysis dated January 5 to determine whether Fruit Cola should be continued (Alternative 1) or discontinued (Alternative 2). If an amount is zero, enter “0”. Use a minus sign to indicate a loss.

 Differential Analysis Continue Fruit Cola (Alt. 1) or Discontinue Fruit Cola (Alt. 2) January 5 Continue Fruit Cola (Alternative 1) Discontinue Fruit Cola (Alternative 2) Differential Effect on Income (Alternative 2) Revenues \$ \$ \$ Costs: Variable cost of goods sold Variable operating expenses Fixed costs Income (Loss) \$ \$ \$

Feedback

For continue and discontinue alternatives subtract the costs from the revenues. Use percentages to separate variable from fixed costs. Determine the differential effect on income of the revenues, costs, and income (loss) by subtracting alternative 2 from alternative 1.

I gave a lower rating on the service because, a notification from the support team went out but it did not come to my email address. Had I not looked earlier on the website, then I would have been penalized for not turning in my paper on time. On my profile, I have a phone# and I also have an email address. Please set up a system to text or email new messages or notifications from the writer or support team. This will ensure that the order is processed in a timely manner. With the new and upcoming technology, this seems like it should be an easy fix to have a tool built in the website to email or text notifications of changes to orders. This is no reflection to the support team. I see this as a system issue and not a support team issue.
