### If bad debt means that only \$7,000 were receivable against costs of \$28,000 what would be the percentage loss?    Answer: ________

75%
Explanation
The percentage loss can be calculated by dividing the amount of bad debt (\$21,000) by the total costs (\$28,000) and multiplying by 100. In this case, the calculation would be (21,000 / 28,000) * 100 = 75%. This means that there is a 75% loss on the receivables due to bad debt.

### How many trucks would be needed to transport one million items, if each truck could carry 100 boxes, each box contains 10 packs and each pack contained 100 items? Answer: ________

10
Explanation
To find the number of trucks needed to transport one million items, we can work backwards. Each truck can carry 100 boxes, and each box contains 10 packs. Since each pack contains 100 items, each box can carry 10 packs * 100 items = 1000 items. Therefore, each truck can carry 1000 items. To transport one million items, we would need 1,000,000 items / 1000 items per truck = 1000 trucks. Therefore, the answer is 10 trucks.

### If a product generate a profit of \$36,000 with operating costs of \$204,000; what is the profit expressed as a percentage of total revenue? ANSWER: ________

15%
Explanation
The profit expressed as a percentage of total revenue can be calculated by dividing the profit by the total revenue and multiplying by 100. In this case, the profit is \$36,000 and the total revenue can be calculated by adding the profit to the operating costs, which is \$204,000. Therefore, the total revenue is \$240,000. Dividing the profit of \$36,000 by the total revenue of \$240,000 and multiplying by 100 gives us 15%, which is the profit expressed as a percentage of total revenue.

### If the income generation is \$12,000 and the operating costs are \$7,800 what is the percentage profit? ANSWER:________

35%
Explanation
The percentage profit is calculated by dividing the profit by the income and multiplying by 100. In this case, the profit is calculated by subtracting the operating costs from the income, which gives us \$12,000 - \$7,800 = \$4,200. Dividing \$4,200 by \$12,000 and multiplying by 100 gives us 35%.

### All but 13 seats were taken on a busy train service made up of 8 carriages each with 72 seats. If 40 people were standing how many passengers were on the service? ANSWER: ________

603
Explanation
Since there are 8 carriages with 72 seats each, the total number of seats on the train is 8 x 72 = 576. If all but 13 seats were taken, then there were 576 - 13 = 563 seats occupied. Additionally, there were 40 people standing. Therefore, the total number of passengers on the train is 563 + 40 = 603.
