    Gerhard’s Burger Barn sells a premium Cheeseburger with all the fixings for $12.50. The standard Food Cost % for the item is 35% and the labor cost required to produce it is 28.2%. After food & labor costs are factored in how much money does Gerhard have leftover to pay the rest of the bills and hopefully make a profit?

    • A.

      $6.18

    • D.

      $7.90

    Correct Answer
    B. $4.60
    Explanation
    (standard food cost) + (labour cost) = (total expenses)
    35% + 28.2% = 63.2%

    So to calculate the total expenses ($)
    $12.50 * 0.632 = $7.90

    To calculate the profit find the difference of selling price and expenses
    $12.50 - $7.90 = $4.60
