    Solution:

    (a) Total contribution margin = Sales - Total variable cost

    = 1,320,000-111,000

    = $1,209,000

    Contribution Rate = Contribution margin / Sales

    = 1,209,000/1,320,000

    = 91.59090909%

    (b) Break even sales = Fixed costs / Contribution rate

    = 567,000/91.59090909%

    = $619,057

    (c) Break even volume in units = Break even / Selling price per unit

    = 619,057/125

    = 4,953 (Rounded to near whole number)
