I sat my PCR exams yest and one question really bugged me

25500 parts to be manufactured
each uses 10kg of raw material
allow for 15% wastage
opening stock of 1000
closing stock of 1200

how many need to be produced

i did 25500 x 10 = 255000
times 1.15 to gross up for wastage = 293250
movent in stock 200

there were 4 answers to chose from cant rememeber exactly as ive passed the paper i wrote it down on to my tutor who also couldnt work it out, but the lowest possible answer was 300,000 which i couldnt get anywhere near!!!

am i doing somethin completly wrong??

    You are working out the wastage incorrectly.

    255000/85 = 3000
    3000*100 = 300000
