Gallatin Carpet Cleaning is a small, family-owned business operating out of Bozeman, Montana. For its services, the company has always charged a flat fee per hundred square feet of carpet cleaned. The current fee is \$28 per hundred square feet.

The total cost of operating the company for the year is \$430,000, which includes the following costs: Wages | \$ 150,000 | Cleaning supplies | 40,000 | Cleaning equipment depreciation | 20,000 | Vehicle expenses | 80,000 | Office expenses | 60,000 | President’s compensation | 80,000 | | \$ 430,000 |
Resource consumption is distributed across the activities as follows: Distribution of Resource Consumption Across Activities | | | Cleaning | Travel to | Job | | | | Carpets | Jobs | Support | Other | Total | Wages | 70% | 20% | 0% | 10% | 100% |…...
