    HI

    COS = 1825000
    Profit 20%

    So COS is 80%

    100
    80 = 1825000

    100 / 80 x 1825000 = 2281250 sales value

    Remember you always put the percentage you do not have a value for first in the calculator ie in this case sales value 100

    If you had the sales value it would be 80/100 x 2281250 = COS 1825000

    Hope this helps!

    How do you know COS is 182500??

    This seems to be a ridiculously hard question.

    how on earth are you supposed to get sales?
