Hi
Can anyone help me with this question from the Financial Performance CBA?
Company expects to sell 30,000 units @ £70 each
Fixed production costs are £360,000
Labour is 1.5hrs @ £18 per hour
Profit Margin 30%
I've got the target production cost as £49 (£70£21)
Target variable material cost as £10 (4927 labour 12 fixed costs)
Contribution per unit as £33 (7027 labour 10 material)
I am totally clueless as to how to get 'the required volume of sales (assuming the target variable cost per unit is met) to achieve a total profit of £800,000'
The answer is given as 35152.
Can anyone tell me how this figure is reached, please?
Thanks

This is a development of break even analysis.
You should know that:
required profit + total fixed costs = sales volume required for required profit
.......contribution per unit
So use the figures you have produced
£800,000 + £360,000 = 35151.5 which rounds to 35152
...........(£70£37)Sandy
