# AQ2016 MDCL - Sample Assessment 2 Question 8 (a)

I keep getting 1784.99 for the maximum profit and the answer is showing 1785... it says show answers to two decimal places - help?

• Maximum profit resulting from optimal plan would be:
Cost per unit x units optimal plan for every product X Y Z in total in £2540
less Fixed cost per unit x sales demand

0.43 x 407 for prod. X
0.50 x 600 for Y
0.70 x 400 for Z

so 2540 - 755 = 1785
• I know so 0.43 x 407 = 175.01
0.5 x 600 = 300
0.7 x 400 = 280
175.01 + 300 + 280 = 755.01

2540-755.01 = 1784.99
• I was suck with this question too but the exam was much harder than this. It is helpful though cheers • This still hasn't been answered! Lol
• oh sorry I thought it has. I didnt pay much attention to the answer lol! have you done this exam yet?
• hi, how did you get the figure for production per unit 200 , 600, 400 ?
• the fixed cost for product x is not £0.43 per unit, is £0.875 because we are producing 200 units and not 407 so 0.43*407=175.01/200=0.875.
