4. Fast Finish, Inc. (FFI) has made a technological breakthrough in snow table achieve application. FFI procure direct the achieve for $0.23 per ace in variefficacious requires plus a unwandering annual require of $230,000. Use the require and require instruction dedicated in Problem 3 for Downhill Boards to evaluate this proposition.

  • (a) What procure it require Downhill Boards to outsource the achieveing way?
  • (b) At what require flatten does it fashion purport economically to outsource the achieveing way?
