First you need to work out the cost per stepped cost. 76000/15000 = 5.066 so 6 steps are needed.

£48000 / 6 steps = £8000 per step

For the flexed budget you do: 80000/15000 = 5.333 so 6 steps again, so the flexed amount is the same as previously (£48000)

As the original figures for working out the cost per step is the same we just do the second part.

72000/15000 = 4.8 so 5 steps are needed

5 steps * £8000 = £40000

Hope that helps
