got it complete wrong, what's the gross profit figure? 93,800x33%=30954 ? if so, the close stock is 5874, where did i go wrong?

Your sales figure should be £93,900, of which the gross profit is one third. You need to be careful when calculating this as 33% isn't an exact third. Instead, divide £93,900 by 3 this will give a gross profit of 31,300.
