Could anyone post a list of all the different formulas simple and complex?
Break even = fixed costs/ contribution
- you have to rearrange if they ask you for any others.

operating(net profit) - total revenue - (fixed+variable costs)
operating profit margin - operating(net) / turnover x 100
gross profit - total revenue - variable costs
gross profit margin - gross profit / turnover x 100

they use a lot of different terms - so like revenue is the same as turnover and sales revenue

fixed costs : they sometimes use words like overhead , indirect costs to describe this.

variable costs: they can use words like cost of sales , direct costs to describe these

- if you read the whole forum i explained it in more detail to someone - it would help and my teacher advised just to step in the questions so if they say the owner of Burger king - act like its you and then think about the content

good luck

- these are all the formulas
2. The exam is in less than 2 hours, best of luck everyone!

Uh, I thought question one was market orientation. I can't remember all of the details, but I remember it saying they used market research and some other stuff and businesses that are market orientated always use market research to find out what customers want etc.
11. Yep. When you're looking at the wrong time for your exam.... You have no words.
I missed 18 marks. FML.

14. Yeah I got Market Orientation, because they weren't really segmenting the market with the cafe and yoga classes
