P4-31 Neptune Company produces toys and other items for use in beach and resort areas. A small, inflatable toy has come onto the market that the company is anxious to produce and sell. The new toy will sell for $2.9 per unit. Enough capacity exists in the company’s plant to produce 30,900 units of the toy each month. Variable costs to manufacture and sell one unit would be $1.84, and fixed costs associated with the toy would total $48,631 per month.


The company’s Marketing Department predicts that demand for the new toy will exceed the 30,900 units that the company is able to produce. Additional manufacturing space can be rented from another company at a fixed cost of $2,432 per month. Variable costs in the rented facility would total $2.03 per unit, due to somewhat less efficient operations than in the main plant.
