Detailed Solution

129. The information that we need is shown in the graph Clothing brand sales.
Step 1 – Calculate the total annual Brand b sales by adding the 4 quarters
65 + 60 + 78 + 73 = 276
Step 2 – Calculate the fraction compared to the annual sales target
276 / 690 = 2/5
So the correct answer is (D) 2/5

130. The information that we need is shown in the graph Clothing brand sales.
Step 1 - Calculate the total clothing sales, as follows;
Brand a = 59 + 58 + 75 + 53 = 245
Brand b = 65 + 60 + 78 + 73 = 276
Brand c = 74 + 72 + 70 + 66 = 282
Step 2 - Calculate the average sales per quarter, as follows;
Brand a (245 / 4) = 61.25 i.e. 61,250
Brand b (276 / 4) = 69 i.e. 69,000
Brand c (282 / 4) = 70.5 i.e. 70,500
So the correct answer is (A) 70,500, 69,000, 61,250

131. The information that we need is shown in the table Previous month’s sales turnover and profit and the graph Clothing brand sales.
Step 1 from the table Previous month’s sales turnover and profit … …Previous month’s sales turnover = 23,000
Step 2 from the graph Clothing brand sales, obtain the quarter’s sales for Brand a (53000)
Step 3 – calculate the difference
53,000 – 23,000 = 30,000
So the correct Answer is (A) £30,000

132. The information that we need is shown in Previous month’s sales turnover and profit. We are told this table gives data for the previous month, which is Quarter 4, month 3.
Step 1
Calculate the 5% increase in variable costs for the previous month.
5,500 x 5/100 = £275
Step 2 – as shown in the table Previous month’s sales turnover and profit as the variable costs increase so profit decreases by the same amount.
So the correct answer is (B) £275 decrease

133. The information that we need is shown in the Table; Previous month’s sales turnover and profit.
Step 1 – calculate the difference in sales tax.
16.5 – 14 = 2.5%
Step 2 – calculate the difference in tax due.
23000 x 2.5/100 = £575
Step 3
The Sales tax is actually higher so the mistake would have made the Net Turnover appear higher than in truth.
So the correct Answer is (A) £575 too high.
