closing stock+Expected sales-opening stock = optimum Production
15300bike X $100 each = $1530000
Sorry could not understand it
Total D.M=$15000
Total D.L = $ 6000
V.O.H = $6000 X .75 = $4500
F.o.H = $6000 X .5 = $3000
Total O.H = 4500+3000 = $7500
Cost of goods sold = $150000 X 0.4 = $60000
Merchandise needed = Closing stock + Expected sales - Opening stock
=>6000 + 60000 - 5000 = $61000
