The Healthy Spring Water company sells bottled water for offices and homes. The price of the water is $20 per 10 gallon bottle and the company currently sells 2000 bottles per day.  Following is the company's income and costs on a daily basis.

1. What is the maximum sales loss (in % and units) that Healthy Spring could tolerate before a 20% price increase would fail to make a positive contribution to its profitability? (That is, what is the basic break-even sales change?)

2. By how much would Healthy Spring's contribution increase if its sales declined by 15% following the price increase?

3. In order for Healthy Spring to reposition itself as a premium water, management believes that it will have to upgrade the packaging of its product. The company will deliver the water in glass rather than plastic bottles and the bottles will be "safety sealed" to insure their cleanliness until the covering is removed in the customer's home. These changes will add $1.00 per bottle to the variable cost of sales.

4. To reposition its water as a premium product, Healthy Spring will require an increase in its advertising and promotion budget of $900 daily. What is the maximum sales loss that Healthy Spring could tolerate before a 20% price increase would fail to increase its net profit? (That is, what is the break-even sales change including the incremental fixed cost of the advertising campaign?)
