Hi Sara,
a) £120,000
Workings: £90 selling price minus the cost of £70 = profit per unit = £20 x 6000 units = £120,000
b)£70 x 8000= £560,000 sales
The variable costs are  £30 x 8000 = £240000
Fixed costs are then flexed. £24 x 10,000/8000 =£30
£30 x 8000 = £240,000
Sales of £560k minus all costs of £480k = £80k
c)£70 x 10,000=£700k
The variable costs are  £30 x 6000 = £180,000
Fixed costs are then flexed. £24 x 10,000/6000 = £40
£40 x 6000 = £240,000
The extra 4000 then cost £45 x 4000 = £180,000
Sales of £700k minus all costs of £600k = £100k Profit
d)£50 / 80% = £62.50
As the 20% is profit margin.
e)£80 x 30% = £24
£80 + £24 = £104
Hope this helped.1
