Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Target Profit = 13530.00

Fixed costs = 111425 + 48350 = 159775.00

Total income required = 159775 + 13530 = 173305.00

Pan sale price: 2.75

Per pan costs: 0.37 + 0.63 + 0.53 + 0.12 = 1.65

Per pan profit: 2.75 - 1.65 = 1.10

How many times do I have to make a profit of 1.10 in order to have a total of 173305?

173305/1.10 = 157,550 pans
