I haven't seen the question, but have you taken returns off the sales figure? I0

No there is no returns. The question is about ratios0

Then its the net profit figure over sales, and multiply by 100 to get the %0 
Hi there, i can't find what the net profit is, the question i am faced with is: 
Task 1  complete the following table of ratios for 2005, the ratios for 2004 are given.
Table of ratios Ratio 2004 2005
Hardware  commercial Net profit/sales 17.5% ?
Development costs/Sales 34.7% ?
Sales per employee 22,107 ?
Results for the 2004/2005 financial year are as follows
Year Hardware Hardware Software &
Commercial Goverment consultancy
2005 Sales 15,957,000 24,768,000 11,368,000
2005 Development costs 6,376,000 7,832,000 2,134,000
2005 Other Costs 7,215,000 8,150,000 3,716,000
2005 No Employee's 831 607 423
2004 Sales 17,643,000 25,974,000 9,276,000
Note It is company policy to write off development costs in the year of expenditure because of technology.
I can figure out thedepartment costs over sales but not the NET profit over sales, what i need is a percentage, please help!0 
You need to subtract the development and other costs from sales to arrive at the net profit. Then divide the net profit by sales and multiply by 10 to get the ratio.
I've seen this very question, but for Unit 7.0 
Thanks for your help much appreciated.:001_smile:0
