August

\$ 60,546

September

4,068

\$ 59,352

Management believes that maintenance cost is a mixed cost that depends on machine-hours. Using the
high-low method to estimate the variable and fixed components of this cost, these estimates would be
closest to:

\$6.54 per machine-hour; \$33,332 per month

\$13.42 per machine-hour; \$55,785 per month

\$11.04 per machine-hour; \$14,441 per month

\$11.04 per machine-hour; \$15,876 per month

Sperberg Corporation's operating leverage is 4.8. If the company's sales increase by 13.75%, its net

Temblador Corporation purchased a machine 7 years ago for \$342,500 when it launched product E26T.
Unfortunately, this machine has broken down and cannot be repaired. The machine could be replaced by
a new model 330 machine costing \$346,500 or by a new model 230 machine costing \$308,500.
Management has decided to buy the model 230 machine. It has less capacity than the model 330
machine, but its capacity is sufficient to continue making product E26T. Management also considered,
but rejected, the alternative of dropping product E26T and not replacing the old machine. If that were
done, the \$308,500 invested in the new machine could instead have been invested in a project that
would have returned a total of \$308,500.

In making the decision to invest in the model 230 machine, the opportunity cost was:
