This will drop the overall net operating income of the company. Hence to see it more clearly before making any decision, the company need to drop the overhead cost of company as it is a common cost to the company.

Cost Profit and Break Even Analysis
Contribution margin ratio is the contribution from an activity expressed as a percentage of the sales, thus in case of round trampolines the contribution margin will be:
Contribution margin ratio= (Contribution/Sales Revenue)*100 = (75,000/130,000)*100 = 57.7%
Break Even in Sales = Fixed Cost/Contribution Margin = 92,000/0.57 =
