Detailed Solution

151. The information that you need is shown in both the line graph and the histogram.
Step 1 – calculate 2006’s global income for Ploche Inc by adding the 4 quarters
13.5 + 11.6 + 13.9 + 15.3 = 54.3 (£100,000s)
= £5.43 million
Step 2 – calculate 2007 global income (allowing for the annual change of 1.4%)
£5.43 million x 1.014 = £5.506 million
Step 3 - to the nearest £10,000
£5.506 million = £5,510,000
Thus the correct answer is (B), £5,510,000

152. Check whether each option is True or False
Ploche Inc increased global income each quarter during 2006.
FALSE – not in Quarter 2
Between 2007-2010 Zwex Ltd has experienced 6.9% global income growth.
FALSE - % are cumulative year-on-year. Hence the growth between 2007-2010
is (1.006 x 1.022 x 1.018) = 1.0466, or 4.66%.
In 2006 Quew plc’s global income was £5,430,000
FALSE – it was £5,410,000
Ploche Inc has experienced positive global growth each year between 2006-2010
TRUE
The average 2006 Quarter 2 sales were £1.15 million
FALSE – they were £1.27 million
Thus the correct answer is (D), Ploche Inc has experienced positive global growth each year between 2006-2010

153.

154. Step 1 – calculate Zwex Ltd’s Global sales for 2006
8.6 + 17.4 + 12.7 + 11.3 = 50 (£100,000s)
Step 2 – put this figure into the ratio given in the question 4 (Global) : 3 (European) = £5 million (Global) : x (European)
Step 3 – calculate Zwex Ltd’s Rest of Europe sales
x (European) = £5 million x 3/4 = £3.75 million
Thus the correct answer is (D), £3.75 million

155. The information that you need is shown in both the line graph and the histogram.
Step 1 – calculate 2006’s global income for Quew plc by adding the 4 quarters
12.4 + 9.2 + 16.7 + 15.8 = 54.1 (£100,000’s) = £5.41 million
Step 2 – calculate 2007 global income (allowing for the global income change of - 0.7%) £5.41 million x 99.3% = £5.37 million
Step 3 – calculate 2008 global income (allowing for the global income change of - 0.8%) £5.37 million x 99.2% = £5.33 million
Step 4 - to the nearest £100,000 £5.33 million = £5.30 million
Note that £5.33 is incorrect as the question asked for to the nearest £100,000.
Thus the correct answer is (D), £5.30 million
