The company received a proposal from Pear Company to buy 10,000 units of Washington Company’s product for $49 per unit. This is a one-time only order and acceptance of this proposal will not affect the company’s regular sales. The president of Washington Company is reluctant to accept the proposal because he is concerned that the company will lose money on the special order.
Prepare a schedule reflecting an incremental analysis of this proposal and indicate the effect the acceptance of this order might have on the company’s income.
