They expect to sell 3000 copies of its weather app. What is the margin of safety? Break even point = 1,250 Expected sales = 3,000 Margin of safety = expected sales – break even point = 3,000 – 1,250 = 2,750 (sales can drop by this amount before they start to make a loss)

Calculate the profit or loss if 3,000 Apps are sold. Show your workings and the formula used (3 marks) Variable cost per unit x number of apps sold Profit = Sales revenue – total costs Sales revenue = selling price x quantity sold Sales revenue = £2 x 3,000 Sales revenue = £6,000 Total costs = Fixed costs + total variable costs Total costs = £2,000 + (£0.40 x 3,000) Total costs = £3,200 Profit = Sales revenue – total costs Profit = £6,000 - £3,200 Profit = £2,800
