    Your figures are right, are you sure you're calculating the square root at the right time?

    2 x 1.2 x 67500 = 162000
    Divide this by 0.8 = 202500
    Square root of 202500 = 450

    Don't you divide by the holding cost?
  • NpsNps Experienced Mentor Registered Posts: 782
    Yes (second line of my workings).

    Edit - sorry angmc, thought you were the original poster, I think we cross posted!
