Aqa buss1 2013 jan 9th watch

1. (Original post by bg***j2)
I got 5.2 and 7.1

For b,

I did 200 x 6=1200 => 1 day

1200 x 7= 8400 => 7 days

8400 x 52=436800 =>1 year

(436800/8400000) x 100 = 5.2
btw wasn't it more convenient to do 1200*365?
2. it seems everyone Ive spoken to got a different number for the market growth, I wonder how big the bracket of what they will allow is?

I originally got 7.7, but just realised its 7.1

I put down 7.14% to 2 dp as I am used to writing it to 2dp in maths

heh..

did anyone include calculations in 2b and 2c?
5. (Original post by 06masong)
Really? I knew the formula to work out revenue but used figures from table 1 / location A. At 200 customers per day with an average spend of £6, revenue = 6 x 200 x 365 for the year?

I can remember the first market size figure at 8.4m but not sure on the second?
it was market growth not her business so you were suppose to only use the increase of market from 8.4 in 2013 to 9 in 2014

I included in 2 b the location i calculated the difference between
200*6 in A and 150*5 at B and got 375 pounds more revenue each day
so (375/365) 136 875 more revenue a year . Which is probably unneeded and to some extend wrong ....... its just my opinion
7. about entrepreneur i wrote about having flaxible time being her own boss making her routine which she did not like at old workplace bla bla bla bla bla bla just benefits you can find in the book + application and some analysis
8. Got it tomorrow, dreading it!

I thought the formula was product sales/ total market sales x 100?! So did the last quarter I jan )100000) divided by 8.4 million or something?! Agh and they were 6 marks together?! I also used my answer in c with the market share for 2014?! To fix the doffernce and divide it by the original ahhh

Does someone usually do one as it would be interested to see one?
People normally do for other subjects so I was hoping so :')
14. The market share one I knew the formulae but must have calculated the sales revenue wrong as I didn't get 3.9% I got the 7.1% right though. I agree some of the information was limited for about 2 questions to develop points clearly and then back it up with the case study.
15. I got 7.1 for the market growth and didn't put an answer for market share. :/
16. relax...if you have put in the correct working out i.e. formula then you will lose no more than one mark according to AQA examiner
17. would you lose a mark if you did not include the % ?? Im sure I did

same here ;{
19. I'm curious and i can't find the answer here so if somebody could clarify, that'd be great.

The market share question, was it the following:

Add together all the sales income in each quarter within the forecast
Divide by the current market size (£8.4 million)
* 100 to change it into a %

I'm pretty sure that was right...

Yeah, that's what I did too, got 3.9% as the answer?
