1. ## accounting basic math

I am having trouble with the following:

Yearly Income (000)

Year 1:
Turnover: 51,000
Cost of Sales: -33,000
Exceptional Costs: -45
Other Income: 180
Earnings before Income Tax: 10,320

Year 2:
Turnover: 52,500
Cost of Sales: -35,310
Exceptional Costs: -38
Other Income: 600
Earnings before Income Tax: 9,624

Q1) If cost of sales, overheads, other income and earnings before income tax changed between year 0 to year 1 at the same rates as from year 1 to year 2, and if there were no exceptional costs in year 0, what was the turnover in year 0 in millions?

ANS: 41.5, 49.5, 49.9, 51.2 or 63.1

Q2) Other income is expected to drop by 70% in Year 3 and exceptional costs are predicted to double. IF turnover changes as from Y1 to Y2, and cost of sales and overheads remain as for Y2, what will the % change be from Y1 to Y3 in earnings before income tax?

ANS: fall 55%, fall 17%, fall 7.2%, rise 3.8% or rise 11.3%

The problem I am facing is calculating turnover in the first place!

Your help will be most appreciated!

"Earnings before Income Tax" is the sum of all those things so to find just "turnover", subtract all the others from "Earnings before Income Tax":
10320- 180-(-45)-(-7815)-(-33000)= 51000.

Turnover: 52,500
Cost of Sales: -35,310
Exceptional Costs: -38
Other Income: 600

Just "back up" each of those things. "cost of sales" went from -33000 to -35310, a rate of -35310/-33000= 1.07. "Year 0" cost, C0, must satisfy -33000/C0= 1.07: 1.07C0= -33000 so C0= -33000/1.07= -30,841. Do the same with each of the other things and calculate the "turnover" as above.

ANS: 41.5, 49.5, 49.9, 51.2 or 63.1
Why do you give 5 different numbers here when the problem only asked for one?

Q2) Other income is expected to drop by 70% in Year 3 and exceptional costs are predicted to double. IF turnover changes as from Y1 to Y2, and cost of sales and overheads remain as for Y2, what will the % change be from Y1 to Y3 in earnings before income tax?
