Grit 337, a coarsecleaning powder with many industrial uses, costs $2.40 a pound tomake and sells for $3.60 a pound. A small portion of the annualproduction of this product is retained for further processing inthe Mixing Department, where it is combined with several otheringredients to form a paste, which is marketed as a silver polishselling for $5.20 per jar. This further processing requires 1/4pound of Grit 337 per jar. Costs of other ingredients, labor, andvariable overhead associated with this further processing amount to$2.40 per jar. Variable selling costs are $0.30 per jar. If thedecision were made to cease production of the silver polish, $8,800of Mixing Department fixed costs could be avoided.
