Answers and Explanations
Answer 1. (A)
Units ordered = Units sold + Ending inventory – Beginning inventory
= 3150 + 2880 – 2520 = 351 0
Total sales of Mobile phones =
900 + 1800 + 6300 + 1050 +2100 + 7350 + 1200 + 2400 + 8400 = Rs.31,500
∴Sales price per unit of Mobile phones = = Rs.10
Cost price per unit of Mobile phones = = Rs.8
Total value of order placed = 3510 × 8 = Rs.28,080.
Answer 2. (D)
From the above table we add all the sales value, column wise
= 40500 + 47700 + 44100 = 132300
14% of 132,300 = 18522.
Hence, (D) is the correct option.
Answer 3. (C)
For Powai and Worli, Earphone sale value = 22050
And Mobile phones sales value = 7200
Profit = 10% × 22050 + 20% × 7200 = 3645
Answer 4. (E)
Units ordered = Units sold + Ending Inventory – Beginning Inventory
7560 = units sold + 6120 – 5760i.e units sold = 7200
Earphones sold (in rupees thousand) = 100800
∴ unit sales price = =14
Answer 5. (B)
In a month of February, 1050 units of Mobile phones and 2400 unitsof Earphones were sold in all 3 areas.
S.P per unit of Mobile phones = =Rs. 10
S.P of Earphone per unit = = Rs. 14
This Price per unit is from a month of January. Number of units of Mobile phones sold in the month of January
Number of units of Earphones sold in the month of January =
We know that, Number of units ordered = Units sold + Ending Inventory – Beginning Inventory
For Mobile phones, units ordered = 900 + 840 – 720 = 1020
