1. (TCO 5) Kirkland Company manufactures a part for use in its production of hats.  When 10,000 items are produced, the costs per unit are:
Direct materials                                   \$0.60
Direct manufacturing labor                    3.00
Variable manufacturing overhead           1.20
Fixed manufacturing overhead               1.60
Total                                                   \$6.40
Mike Company has offered to sell to Kirkland Company 10,000 units of the part for \$6.00 per unit.  The plant facilities could be used to manufacture another item at a savings of \$9,000 if Kirkland accepts the offer.  In addition, \$1.00 per unit of fixed manufacturing overhead on the original item would be eliminated.
