I got £6.1 million for the decision trees question. Any one else?
I did 0.8 x £15m = £12m
£12m - £5m = £7 (to spend on TV expenditure)

0.2 x -£4.5m = -£9m
-£9m - £5m = -£14m (to not spend on TV expenditure)
2. lmao I got something like 60 million and -4.5 million for the decision tree...do you get marks for justifying your answer even if the workings are wrong? :s

0.2 x -£4.5m = -£9m
-£9m - £5m = -£14m (to not spend on TV expenditure)
This is what I did:

0.8 x £15m = £12m

0.2 x -£4.5m = -£0.9m

£12m - £0.9m = £11.1

£11.1m - £5m = £6.1m
4. I did (0.8x15) + (0.2x-4.5) = 11.1million
11.1 - 5 = £6.1million

I did (0.8x15) + (0.2x-4.5) = 11.1million
11.1 - 5 = £6.1million
That's definitely right.
6. I got 19.5% on the return on investment question? :/
7. (Original post by dwinnbrown)
That's definitely right.
Damn didn't do that! oh well will still pick up marks which still matters!!
8. I got 19.5% too!
9. I'm here Now: (I'll Keep adding answers over the next hour)

Q1) Fixed Cost
Q2) Maslow: First ego/esteem then Actualisation
Q3) Re-Order Level 30 Units
Q4) ROI: 23.2 % (23 IS FINE) (Common Practice to round up Recurring decimal in that form)
Q5) Decision tree COO: 5M EV:11.1 NG: 6.1M Therefore recommend commencing the plan
Q6) PROCESS IS PART OF MARKETING MIX
Q7) Labour pro and Unit cost both rise as (25>20)
Q8) Payables Money owed by Business to SUPPLIErS (CREDITORS)

Remind me of the questions and ill tell you the answers!
10. got 23.18%
11. How are you getting 23%?
12. Cant Remember Exactly:

ROI: Total Return/Total invest x100
ROI: (75000-28000+4000)/220000 (Cap Employed)
THAT X 100 IS ABOUT 23.2%

This is correct! As many wrongly assume the 28000 Training cost comes into Cap Employed. Cap employed is the initial investment Usually NON-Current Assets, therefore, any extra costs come under the TC section, whereby it is deducted from any gains.

Really happy too!! It was easy I got 23.2%

I got the same
20. If i got 0.8 x £15m = £12m
£12m - £5m = £7m

0.2 x -£4.5m = -£9m
-£9m - £5m = -£14m

How many marks would this be? I'm not sure how people got £6.1m
