Explanation:

The relevant cost for decision to accept the special order are

Contribution per unit =Selling price - Variable cost

                                  = $330 - (250+40) = $40

Incremental contribution = $40 × 3,100 =  $124,000

Operating income would increase by = $124,000 -$ 15,000

                                                           = $109,000

If a special sales order is accepted for 2,500 seats for $320 per unit, fixed costs increase by $5,000, and variable marketing and administrative costs for that order are $25 per unit.

Variable costs per unit:

Manufacturing= $220

Total= 225

Fixed costs= 5,000

Increase in Income= 2,500*320 - 225*2500 - 5000= $232,500
