Sorry I know this is an easy question but I have gone blank.

Could anyone help how to work out D?

The answer is 28,000 but I can't even seem to work backwards

24Use the sales prices per unit you worked out earlier in the question.

So sales revenue from Exe = 30,000 units @ £91.20 = £2,736,000

Sales revenue for Wye = ?? @ £95 = £2,736,000 (must be same as above)

So how many units of Wye are needed to earn the same revenue?

£2,736,000 / £95 = 28,800 units.

You said above 28,000 units - not sure if it was a typo? If not maybe my answer is incorrect but that's how I would work it out!

Thanks

34I also worked it out the same as you and got 28800 which is why i was confused.

I'll have a look and see if there's been an error in the text book on the osborne website as it definitely states 28000

24342434Easier said than done but try not to be disheartened and just get straight back into it

Just sat credit management last week and found it to be great so fingers crossed. But i have failed decisions and controls (only found out yesterday so confidence is a bit low) and also my budgeting so will need to resit

What did you struggle with on the exam for cash and treasury if you don't mind me asking? Trying to be as prepared as possible as my exam is tomorrow but there seems to be so many ways of calculating interest and making investments!

24That's great, hopefully a pass for you there! I don't want to dishearten you but my cash exam was nothing like the sample assessments, I really struggled. Just make sure you understand the ratios etc instead of just knowing the formulas. Also there was a lot of double entry in my exam (not sure how much I can tell you) and I definitely wasn't expecting it so make sure you've got that up to scratch too. I'm not much help but I am sure you will ace it Good luck!

34Good luck for MDCL but you'll be fine im sure.... Practise backward variances!!
