Variable costs total $40 per unit. The division also assigns $70 of fixed costs to each unit based on total capacity of 1,000,000 units.Sea Division wants to purchase 200,000 units from Land. However, it is only willing to pay $80 per unit because it has an opportunity to accept a special order at a reduced price.
