Hi All,
I am having a bit of trouble with a section on secondary apportionment and my tutor is on holiday. The total cost of the canteen I am trying to apportion is £6517. The allocation is based on the number of employees which is 9. I am to divide this among the servicing bay,fabrication workshop,mobile unit,maintenance, and stores. I cannot seem to get the right answer on this and I need to understand what I am doing as I have a sjills test on Wednesday.
Can anyone help please?
Amy

How many people work where? Are there only 9 in total? doesn't seem many for the sections you need to spread the costs over.
Total to be apportioned is £6517 / 9 people = £724.11 per person.
Do figures have to be rounded to pounds? I'll assume so.
Say :
2 people work in the servicing bay = 724*2=1448
3 in fabrication = 2173 (I've put the extra £1 on this one as there's three of them!)
1 in mobile unit = 724
2 in maintenance = 1448
1 in stores = 724
If though, it doesn't tell you how many people work in the sections, you may just have to divide it equally between the 5 sections.
That's how I would calculate it  hope it helps.0 
Hi,
Amy i think your in my class!
I had trouble with this one but i have the hang of it now...
You only want to work on the basis of 8 people! so to get servicing dept
2/8 x 6517 = 1629
If you need anymore than this PM me
