A. Servicing, Administration, Misc., Rent, Insurance, Utilities

B. Servicing, Administration, Rent, Misc., Utilities, Insurance

C. Servicing, Administration, Rent, Misc., Insurance, Utilities

D. Servicing, Administration, Misc., Rent, Utilities, Insurance

Correct answer: A
Averaged across the Manufacturing Plants, put the average values for each of the maintenance
costs in decreasing size order, starting with the highest.

Explanation
Averaging and arranging the maintenance cost in descending order
we have Servicing, Administration, Misc., Rent, Insurance, Utilities

Question 9
For which manufacturing plant(s) are the Administration: Rent costs in the ratio 12:5?

A. Bordeaux
B. Berlin
C. Midlands and Glasgow
D. Berlin and Midlands
E. Glasgow and Bordeaux
Correct answer: E
For which manufacturing plant(s) are the Administration: Rent costs in the ratio 12:5?

Explanation
Solving from one plant to another we have the Administration: Rent costs ratios as follows

Mainlands 650: 300 = 2.16: 1 = 10.8: 5
Bordeaux: 600:250 = 2.4: 1 = 12: 5
Berlin: 450: 275 = 1.6: 1 = 8.2: 5
Amsterdam = 525:350 = 1.5: 1 = 7.5: 5
Glasgow = 720: 300 = 2.4: 1 = 12: 5
Clearly the Administration: Rent costs ratios of Bordeaux and Glasgow is 12: 5

Question 10
For the Glasgow manufacturing plant, which maintenance cost(s) represent approximately 7% of 

the total costs?

A. Rent and Utilities
B. Rent
C. Utilities
D. Insurance
E. Insurance and Utilities
Correct answer: E
For the Glasgow manufacturing plant, which maintenance cost(s) represent approximately 7% of
the total costs?
Explanation
Total Maintenances cost for Glasgow = 2704
Utilities = 189/2704 x 100 = 7%
Rent = 300/2704 x 100 = 11%
Insurance = 195/2704 x 100 = 7.2 %-approximately 7%
Correct answer therefore is Insurance and Utilities.

Question 11
What is the average annual cost for servicing each of the 5 manufacturing plants (assume 4 

weeks in a month)?

A. £3,300
B. £12,400
C. £16,500
D. £39,600
E. £48,000

Correct answer: E
What is the average annual cost for servicing each of the 5 manufacturing plants (assume 4
weeks in a month)?

Explanation
Average weekly servicing cost = (1050 + 1100 + 950 + 1025 + 875)/5 = 1000
Assuming there are 4 weeks in a month, then we have 48 weeks in a year.
Hence Average annual servicing cost = 1000 x 48 = 48,000

Question 12
Which two manufacturing plants have the same total maintenance costs per week?

Which two manufacturing plants have the same total maintenance costs per week?
A. Midlands and Glasgow
B. Bordeaux and Glasgow
C. Bordeaux and Amsterdam
D. Midlands and Amsterdam
E. None of these
Correct answer: E
Explanation
The maintenance cost of the manufacturing plants is as follows
Mainlands = 2816
Bordeaux = 2790
Berlin = 2451
Amsterdam = 2799
Glasgow = 2704
Hence no two have the same maintenance cost
