    Operating profit
    Return on Net Assets = Operating profit/Net Assets

    Rearrange to get Operating profit = Net Assets * Return on Net Assets.

    Operating profit = £3,600,000 * 12% = £432,000.

    Sales revenue
    Operating profit margin = Operating profit/Sales Revenue.

    Rearrange to get Sales Revenue = Operating profit/Operating profit margin.

    Sales revenue = £432,000/8% = £5,400,000
