Its product sells for $30 per tool and the variable costs incurred in manufacturing and selling the product are as follows on a per tool basis:Direct materials – $8; Direct labor – $4; Sales commission – $2.A customer has proposed a special one-time order to purchase 10,000 tools at a discounted price of $20 per unit.
