Biden Company sells two items, product A and product B.  The company is considering dropping product B.  It is expected that sales of product A will increase by 40% as a result.  Dropping product B will allow the company to cancel its monthly equipment rental costing $200 per month.  The other existing equipment will be used for additional production of product A.  One employee earning $500 per month can be terminated if product B production is dropped.  Biden's other fixed costs are allocated and will continue regardless of the decision made.  A condensed, budgeted monthly income statement with both products follows:

Product AProduct BTotal
Sales$10,000$ 8,000$18,000
Direct materials2,5002,0004,500
Direct labor2,000 1,2003,200

Other allocated overhead   1,000   2,100  3,100
Operating income$4,200$   100 $ 4,300

Prepare an incremental analysis to determine the financial effect of dropping product B.
