Reward One just received a special one-time only order of 2,000 windows at \$225 per window. Accepting the special order would not affect the company's regular business or its fixed costs. Reward One makes windows for its existing customer in batch sizes of 100 windows (100 batches x 100 windows per batch= 10,000 windows) The special order requires Reward One to make the windows in 25 batches of 80 windows.

1) Should Reward One accept this special order? Show your calculations

2) suppose plant capacity were only 11,000 windows instead of 12,000 windows each month. The special order must either be taken in full or be rejected completely. Should Reward One accept the special order? show your calculations

3)As in requirement, assume that monthly capacity is 12,000 windows. Reward one is concerned that if it accepts the special order, its existing customers will immeiately demand price discount of \$20 in the month in which the special order is being filled. They would argue that Reward One's capacity costs are now being spread over more units and that existing customers should get the benefit of these lower costs. Should Reward One accept the special order under these conditions? show your calculations
