Hi Flipflop

What question is this exactly?
• Registered Posts: 95 Regular contributor ⭐
oh dear that looked awful!

Ok NEW PRICE/OLD PRICE - 1 x 100
• Registered Posts: 158 Dedicated contributor 🦉
yes spot on!

Don't understand how that works? Does that formula apply to all those types of questions? :confused1:
• Registered Posts: 95 Regular contributor ⭐
yep I've always used it and it works for me.

So in the tea bag one, the new price is 5.196 and the old price is 4.80

so 5.196/4.80 -1 x 100= 8.25%

There is a few questions on Marginal and absorption costing can anyone explain the difference? Also how do you set them out because it may ask you to set them both out?

Thanks

Hello,

Can you help, when calculating Corporation Tax liability am I rounding up or down for the pence? I'm using the Kaplan books which seems to do both in the mock exam answers!

Thanks

Hi again

Im just doing the gearing ratio on the pev June 2008 section 2.1, in the answers its got 58.82% and 57.36%. Does anyone know where they got this from?

Just done that one. Loan divided by loan + assets
• Registered Posts: 56 Regular contributor ⭐
I've done long term borrowing/net assets and its came up with 1.43 which is right as well. Just don't know where the 58.82% has come from?
• Registered Posts: 95 Regular contributor ⭐
Hey
I did 12,000/ (12,000+8400) x100 = 58.83 %
• Registered Posts: 95 Regular contributor ⭐
