Detroit Disk’s annual fixed costs are $1,800,000.

     Management is planning for the coming year, when it expects that the unit purchase price of the video disks will increase 30 percent. (Ignore income taxes.)


1. Calculate Detroit Disk’s break-even point for the current year in number of video disks.


Break Even point = ____ Units
