Barb has a hot-dog stand near the ferry terminal for Centre Island. She pays $500 per month as rent and $3000 per month in wages for the hired help. Variable costs per hot dog come out to be $1.30 and she sells each hotdog for $3.00. In summer months, she is able to sell 4500 hotdogs in a month. Recently, another hot dog vendor opened his stand across the street. To attract and retain her customers, she added a free soda can which increased her variable costs by 20 cents. To make things worse, the rent was also increased by 15%. What is the change in her monthly net income due to these recent changes. Assume that the monthly sale figures remain at 4500 units.

OLD numbers  X = 4500;  VC = 1.30; FC = 500 + 3000 = 3500;  SP= 3.00
(Selling price × Volume) - Fixed cost - (Variable cost per unit × Volume) = Profit
(3 × 4500) - 3500 - (1.30 × 4500) = PFT
4150 = PFT

NEW numbers  X = 4500; VC = 1.30 + 0.20 = 1.50; FC = 1.15(500) + 3000 = 3575;  SP = 3.00
(Selling price × Volume) - Fixed cost - (Variable cost per unit × Volume) = Profit
(3 × 4500) - 3575 - (1.50 × 4500) = PFT
3175 = PFT
Monthly profit is reduced by = 4150 - 3175 = 975
