Angie Silva has recently opened The Sandal Shop in Brisbane, Australia, a store that specializes in fashionable sandals. Angie has just received a degree in business and she is anxious to apply the principles she has learned to her business. In time, she hopes to open a chain of sandal shops. As a first step, she has prepared the following analysis for her new store:

 

   
Sales price per pair of sandals $ 2.00  
Variable expenses per pair of sandals   1.20  
Contribution margin per pair of sandals $ 0.80  
Fixed expenses per year:      
Building rental $ 9,000  
Equipment depreciation   5,000  
Selling   17,600  
Administrative   18,000  
Total fixed expenses $ 49,600
4. Angie now has two salespersons working in the store-one full time and one part time. It will cost her an additional $10,000 per year to
convert the part-time position to a full-time position. Angie believes that the change would bring in an additional $32,000 in sales each
year. Should she convert the position? Use the incremental approach.
