Detailed Solution

32. There is nothing difficult about this one, just a lot of careful calculator work.
Step 1 – calculate Year 2 product sales for each product
Product A total = 21.5
Product B total = 27.5
Product C total = 23.5
Product D total = 27.5
Thus the correct answer is (D), Product B and Product D

33. The information that you need is in the graph (Year 2) and the table (Year 1)
Step 1 – calculate the Eastern region’s % of total sales (Year 2)
Eastern region’s Year 2 sales (Year 2= 4.5 + 5.5 + 5.5 + 5 = 20.5
Add up the total sales for all products across all regions to get 100 (Ł10,000s)
As a % of total sales: 20.5 / 100 = 20.5%
Step 2 – calculate the change between Year 1 and Year 2
Year 1 = 22%
22 – 20.5 = 1.5%
Thus the correct answer is (C), 1.5% less

34. Calculate the total sales for each region
Eastern = 4.5 + 5.5 + 5.5 + 5 = 20.5%
Northern = 2.5 + 5 + 6 + 7 = 20.5%
Southern = 3.5 + 6.5 + 5 + 4.5 = 19.5%
Western = 5 + 4.5 + 4.5 + 6.5 = 20.5%
Central = 6 + 6 + 2.5 + 4.5 = 19%
Thus the correct answer is (C), Southern and Central

35. Step 1 – refer back to the earlier question for the Year 2 product sales for each product (this is why it’s useful to have legible notes on your rough workings).
Step 2 - Calculate the total Year 2 product sales for the UK
Total = 21.5 + 27.5 + 23.5 + 27.5 = 100 (10,000’s) = 1,000,000
Step 3 – Create an equation totaling the sales of all 3 territories
Total = UK + US + Asia
Total = 1,000,000 x (1 + 4 + 2) = Ł7,000,000
Thus the correct answer is (B), Ł7,000,000

36. The information that you need is in the graph (Year 2) and the table (Year 1)
Step 1 – calculate each region’s % of total sales for Year 2 (from previous question)
Eastern = 20.5%
Northern = 20.5%
Southern = 19.5%
Western = 20.5%
Central = 19%
Step 2 – calculate the change in market share between Year 1 and Year 2, as follows; Thus the correct answer is (D), Central
