Detailed Solution

139. The information that we need is shown in the monthly sales figure tables for CF plc and Callz Ltd.
It would take a long time to work out the average sales achieved for each operation across CF plc
and Callz Ltd. If you focus on the sales and support staff numbers (compared to the monthly sales achieved) it becomes clear that the highest sales per Sales and Support staff will be either Telephone (Callz Ltd) or Telephone (CF plc).
Then, since there is only one sales/support staff member at Callz Ltd (55,400 / 1 = 55,400) this must be higher than CFs (64,000 / 2 = 32,000)
Thus the correct Answer is (D) Telephone (Callz Ltd)

140. The information that we need is shown in the Callz table.
Step 1
A simple equation needs to be solved to determine the size of the online team = X
X + 2X = 11 (current headcount)  2 (reduction in headcount) = 9
3X = 9, so X = 3
i.e. 3 staff members in the online team
Step 2  Calculate new sales target per member of the online team
180,000 / 3 = £60,000
Thus the correct Answer is (B) £60,000

141. The information that we need is shown in both tables. The calculation for each company is shown in the tables below (with the answer marked in bold);
Callz
High Street 38200  35000 = 3200
Internet 42500  40000 = 2500
Catalogue 43800  45000 = -1200
Telephone 55400  60000 = -4600
CF plc
High Street 38200  40000 = -1800
Internet 42000  45000 = -3000
Catalogue 47800  50000 = -2200
Telephone 64000  60000 = 4000
Thus the correct Answer is (D) Catalogue (Callz)

142. The information that we need is shown in the CF plc table.
Step 1 - Calculate total sales = 192,000
Step 2  Calculate telephone sales as a ratio to total sales
64000:192000
1:3
Thus the correct Answer is (A) 1:3

143. The information that we need is shown in both tables.
Step 1  calculate the combined sales target per retail operation across the two stores, as follows
High Street = 75,000
Internet = 85,000
Catalogue = 95,000
Telephone = 120,000
Step 2  calculate the increased sales target based upon the combined number of employees

Thus the correct Answer is (B) Internet
