Hi, i have an answer but just want to see if people agree with me.

The data below relates to a factory.
capacity = 180 units per day
number of employees = 16
wages per day = £60 per employee
selling price = £15 per unit
capacity utilisation = 80%

Assuming that all output is sold, calculate the factory's employee costs as a percentage of turnover

Hi! Thought since I didn’t see anyone respond, I’d just tell you what the answer was!
We did this in class the other day and our teacher sent us the mark scheme for it.

Employee Costs: 16 x £60 = £960
Turnover: £15 x 180 = £2700

960
————— x 100 = 35.5%
2700
