Hi,
can anyone please help me with question 1.8 on this assessment.
I am stuck on the following:
Option 1:
Sales Price: £70
Volume: 10,000
variable material: £20
variable labour: £10
fixed overhead: £24
Option 2:
Sales Price: £90
Volume: 6,000
variable material: £20
variable labour: £10
fixed overhead: £40
1) What profit can be achieved if the price is set at £70. The demand is 10,000 units but only 8,000 units can be produced.
2) An overseas supplier has offered to produce 4,000 at £45.
What profit can be achieved if price is set at £70. The demand is 10,000 units. 6,000 units willl be produced and 4,000 units will be bought.
Thank you very much for your help. It is driving me insane as my exam is on Thurday and I just can't get the right answer (80000 and 100000).

Have only looked at part 1 so far, but remember that the fixed costs per unit are based on 10,000 units being budgeted for, so work out the total fixed costs on that basis. Then calculate the contribution per unit, multiply that by the number of units actually produced/sold, then subtract the fixed costs as calculated above. This will give you your £80,000 profit.0

Part 2 is very similar  the same fixed costs (remember calculated on the basis of 10,000 units being produced). Multiply the contribution of the units bought in, add that to the contribution of those produced in house, and subtract your £240,000 of fixed costs again, to get the profit of £100,000.0

Hi Nps,
Thank you so much. It took me a while to get my head around it but I got it now. Thanks a lot.

Hi I too am struggling to understand question1. The total fixed cost would be £153,600 (24/10000*8000=19.20*8000) Contribution per unit is £7030=£40. Nps is saying multiply this by the number of units so £40*8000=320000153600=£166,400. Could you please explain further how the £80000 is calculated.0

The total fixed cost is £240,000
You can find this from either option
1. 10,000 x £24/unit
or
2. 6,000 x £40/unit
At a contribution of £40 per unit if you sell 8,000 your total contribution is £320,000
Less £240,000 fixed cost
Leaves £80,000 profit

I did my FP exam on Wednesday which went quite well. Keep practising the aat sample assessments and the green light area and eventually you will start to remember how to do the calculations. Practice practice practice0

Thank you ....but the report writing part is giving me a headache are the questions on the practice assesment the same as for exam(report writing)?
