    I will like to know why 800 was multiplied by 8 in the contribution equation.

    The $8 is the contribution for each bottle of lotion.

    If we make 800 bottle of lotion and no bottles of cream then the total contribution is 800 x 8 = 6400.

    They have only done this to get the angle of the contribution line. You could choose any numbers and the angle of the line will be the same – it is only the angle/slope of the line that we need.

    (If you watch the lecture, it explains for the example in the course notes why the angle/slope of the line is important and how to get it.)

    Kaplan and BPP books are both good.
    You can still get a job if you have not finished 3 years experience, but you cannot call yourself ACCA until you have passed all the exams and have 3 years experience.
    I have no idea about starting salaries (and it depends what country you are in!). I suggest you do some research on Google.
