Ok so below are the workings..Mannaesi said:tried to attach again
Selling price per seat is turnover / occupied seats
Occupancy rate is occupied seats/ available seats x 100
Variable costs per occupied seat is variable costs / occupied seat
Gross profit margin is turnover amount/ sales ( occupied seats x selling price) x 100
Fixed costs per occupied seat is fixed costs / occupied seats
Contribution per seat is Turnover  variable costs  fixed costs then divide by 300
Breakeven number of seats is total fixed costs divided by contribution (worked out in the above question)
Breakeven in turnover use the above answer and times by selling price per seat workout above.
Margin of safety sales  breakeven point worked out above then divide by sales again x 100
Mark up on total cost is turnover  variable costs and fixed costs then divide answer by variable costs and fixed costs added together.
You have put too many zero's above on the figures, I have checked this on the mock exam.
Thank you0
