  1. Answer:

    1. Total Revenue in May $ 175,000

    2. Total Salaries & wages For May  $ 88500

    3. Total Travel Expenses for May $21,000

    4. Other Expense  $ 36,000

    5.  Operating Income $ 65,500

    Explanation:

    Given

    Adger Corporation

                         Fixed Element        Variable Element           Actual Total

                          per Month                per Customer            Served for May

    Revenue                                            $5,000                        $160,000

    Employee Salaries

    & wages           $50,000                   $1,100                           $88,000

    Travel expenses                                 $600                           $19,000

    Other expenses $36,000                                                      $34,500

    There were 35 customers.

    Revenue = $5000 per customer

    We can easily calculate as we have been given the number of  customers and the variable element of expense per customer.

    1. Total Revenue in May = 5000 * 35= $ 175,000

    Variable Salaries & wages = $ 1100 per customer

    Total Variable Salaries & wages = $ 1100 *35= $ 38500

    2. Total Salaries & wages For May = Variable + Fixed

                                                         = $ 38500 + $50,000= $ 88500

    Travel expenses = $600per customer

    3. Total Travel Expenses for May = $ 600 *35=   $21,000

    4. Other Expense = Fixed Expenses = $ 36,000 ( there are no variable expenses)

    5.  Operating Income= Revenue – Employee Salaries – Travel Expenses

                                = $ 175,000- $ 88500 – $ 21,000= $ 65,500

    Other expenses are included in the net income statement not operating income statement.
