Hi

Can anyone help me figure out the Depreciation and tea processor operators on this question? I've got no idea how it's came to those amounts.

Thanks

hi

depreciation calculation :
(1) pickmaster:
the annual depreciation charge per pickmaster is given as £2,000.
if u multiply this by 8 ,this will give the total annual depreciation charge for 8 pickmaster
8 pickmaters x £2,000=£16,000

(2) pickmaster 2 :
the annual depreciation charge is given as £9,000.
so £9,000 x 8 pickmaster 2s= £72,000

tea processor operator calculation :
(1) pickmaster:

no. of operators required per day for each machine= 10
no. of machines =8
no. of harvest days = 100 days
cost of operators per day=£6
so the total operator cost is 10x8x100x6 =£48,000

(2)pickmaster 2 :
no of processor operators required per machine =1
no of machines= 8
no of harevest days= 100
cost per day per operator=£6

so total operator cost is 1x8x100x6 =£4,800
