Hi,

I have my cash management exam Tuesday and am working through practice assessments on AAT website. Task 1.2 on the second practice assessment has me stumped! It's a question on sales volume and 3 point moving averages, I have worked out all trends and all seasonal variations and have got these all correct. The second part of the question then asks what the 'average monthly trend' is, the answer given is 36 but for the life of me I can't get to this answer. If anyone can tell me how you work out average monthly trend I will be very grateful as it's driving me mad!! Thanks, Kate.

182To calculate average monthly trend is quite straight forward. You take trend figure for period 7 which is 1885 (last fig) in this instance and take away 1705 (first fig.)trend figure from period 2. You are now left with a figure of 180. You then have to take into account by how many times has trend figure gone up from period 2 to 7, which is 5 times. You divide a figure of 180/5 and you get 36. Good luck with your exams. I have managed to pass all my exams first time, this is the only one which throws me completely Real Exam is quite different from the book and AAT online, so goodluck! Let me know how you find the real one!

182Goodluck with yours!
