The issue I have is: I have no idea what to do here. The funny thing is  I knew time ago..
The contribution calculations suddenly doesn't work for me.

Thank you, if you can explain me a bit of this.

The marginal cost per unit is worked out like this
18 x 1.15 = 20.70 (this is because it is the direct costs and the variable portion of the overheads which is 15% of the direct costs)
To undercut the competition is the competition price (from the spreadsheet given in the question) minus the marginal costs (21.0020.70 = 0.30) then multiply by the number of units (0.30 x 250 = 75)
You can repeat the above process for the market price and spreadsheet price0 
Thank you! Somehow i sorted it.
Sorry for being late with reply.
Thank you a lot!0
