    For the production overheads you will need to apply the high low method to find what the fixed element is
    OR simply 0.40*73000units = 29200 variable, therefore fixed is 46400-29200=17200
    76000*0.40=30400 variable + fixed of 17200=47600

    Equipment hire will be 73000/25000 units = 2.92 or 3 steps
    £37500/3=£12500 = 1 step
    therefore 76000/25000=3.04 or 4 x £12500 = £50000

    @dumutroba thank you for helping, one question i do have is am i suppose to round for example where you put 2.92 or 3 and 3.04 or 4 do we automatically just round up as it isn't stated in the question what they want me to do?

    Yes you round up, because you are past the threshold, that being a step
