    Manufactured units = Required units / 0.97

    Thank you, I don’t ewlaly understand why. I just thought you would Times the required units by 1.03 to add an extra three percent on to the required units?

    It's because the Manufactured units = 100% whereas the Required units only = 97%

    So divide the required units by 97 then x by 100 - or the above calc, required units / 0.97
