    Jon Doe bought a 3 seater sofa for £500. The shipping or clearing fee at Tema is GHC600. Jon uses an exchange rate of 7.0. What will be the selling price of the 3 seater sofa in Ghana if he applies a profit margin of 15%

    • A.


    • B.


    • C.


    • D.


    Correct Answer
    A. 4715
    The selling price of the 3 seater sofa in Ghana can be calculated by adding the cost price, shipping fee, and profit margin. The cost price of the sofa is £500. The shipping fee at Tema is GHC600, which is equivalent to £600/7.0 = £85.71. The profit margin is 15% of the cost price, which is £500 * 0.15 = £75. Therefore, the selling price is £500 + £85.71 + £75 = £660.71. Converting this to Ghanaian cedis using the exchange rate of 7.0, the selling price is GHC660.71 * 7.0 = GHC4624.97. Rounding this to the nearest whole number, the selling price is GHC4715.
