Make-or-Buy Decision

LaSalle Manufacturing had always made its components in-house. However, Jasper Component Works had recently offered to supply one component, C-430, at a price of $12 each. LaSalle uses 4,600 units of Component C-430 each year. The cost per unit of this component is as follows:
