Quantity Discount Analysis (Price Breaks at Specific Quantities)
1. Quotation from Avco at Specific Quantities
1 unit @ \$85 each
3 units @ \$80 each
6 units @ \$70 each
10 units @ \$69 each
2. Instructions
Line 1: Place specific quantities from the quotation on line 1 in the appropriate column. Each column represents a specific
quantity. Assume that ordering 0 is an option. This will support the quantity discount calculation.
Line 2: Place the quoted price from the supplier for each specific quantity on line 2 in the appropriate column.
Line 3: Multiply line 1 by line 2 for each column to arrive at a total price per order.
Line 4: Take the difference between the total price per order (line 3) and each successive order. For column A, it is the difference
between \$85 and ordering zero pieces, or \$0.00. For column B, it is the difference between column B/line 3 and column A/
line 3, or \$240 – \$85 = \$155.
Line 5: This is the difference between each quantity break specified on line 1.
Line 6: This equals line 4 divided by line 5 for each column.
