    Hi

    Here you have to identify the incremental cost of purchasing one-time vs keep purchasing on a monthly basis and multiply by 9% (cost of capital).

    You can do it in different ways:

    1)
    180,000 cases equal 6 months of 30,000 monthly purchases.

    Cost of one-time purchase
    180,000 * $10 = $1,800,000

    Cost of 6 months monthly purchases
    30,000 * 6 * $12 = $ 2,160,000

    Incremental cost = $360,000
    Opportunity cost = $360,000 * 9% = 32,400

    2)
    Incremental unit cost $2 ( $12 - $10)

    180,000 equals 6 months of 30,000 monthly purchases.

    Incremental cost =180,000 * $2 = 360,000

    Opportunity cost = $360,000 * 9% = 32,400
