Prepare comparative income statements for each year using variable costing. (If answer is zero, please enter 0. Do not leave any fields blank.)
Prepare comparative income statements for each year using absorption costing. (If answer is zero, please enter 0. Do not leave any fields blank.)
Reconcile the differences each year in income from operations under the two costing approaches. (If amount is a decrease, use either a negative sign preceding the number e.g. -45 or parentheses e.g. (45).)
