Hello Everyone it is too simple LOOK!

D.M=3000

D.L=4000

=7000 PRIME COST

PRODUCTION OVERHEADS ARE 0.50% OF PRIME COST SO DO

7000*0.50=3500

3500

7000

=10500 PRODUCTION COST

NON-MANUFACTURING COST IS 0.25% OF TOTAL COST SO DO

10500*0.25=2625

2625+10500=13123

THIS {13123} IS COST

SO PROFIT IS 0.30% OF COST NOW

13123*0.30/130={{{{{{{{3028}}}}}}}} - September 14, 2019 at 9:49 am #546118Ken GarrettKeymaster
The previous post is incorrect:

Prime cost = 3000 + 4000 = 7000

Add 50%, so 7000 x 1.5 = 10,500

Add 25%, 20 10,500 x.1.25 = 13125.Current profits: 30% profit margin ie profits are 30% of sales, so the ratios are:

Cost + Profit = Selling price

70 30 10013125

So profit is 13125 x 30/70 = 5,625

Under the 30% mark-up (ie profit is 30% of cost) the ratios are:

Cost + Profit = Selling price

100 30 130Profit would be 13,125 x 30% = 3,937.5

Profits would decrease by 5,625 – 3,937.5 = 1,687.5

Model answer is incorrect.
