Exercise 4:


You own a fast food shop which sells Peri Peri baguette with the following costs:

1. Your fixed cost is £1,200 per month

2. Your average cost of making a Peri Peri baguette is £1.50.

These are assumed to be the only costs of the business.

The average selling price of a Peri Peri baguette is £4.50


1. Produce a table of values for Units Sold ranging from 0 to 600 baguettes, increasing by 100

2.Create a column for Total Revenue (remember Total Revenue = Unit sold x selling price)

3. Create a column for Total Cost (remember Total Cost = Fixed cost + cost of making baguette)

4. Create a column for Profit (remember Profit = Total Revenue – Total Cost)

Exercise 5:

You are given the following data relating to number of deliveries by a distribution company in two regions. The data is shown as entered on an Excel spreadsheet. The grey row and column are those of an Excel spreadsheet.

c. Write down a logical function with an “If” statement to test whether the company has delivered more than 5 items in the North region and delivered 10 or less items in the South region. You should use “DLD” if the company has delivered more than 5 in the North and 10 or less in the South. (See activity 3 Slide 16, week 5)
