Answer #1

Given

Williamson Industries is currently operating at 90% capacity with sales being $ 6 billion and fixed assets being $ 1 billion

a) For full capacity the sales should have been = 6,000,000,000 / 0.90

**Full capacity sales** =
**$6,666,666,666.67**

b) Target fixed asset / sales ratio = Fixed assets / Full capacity sales

Target fixed asset / sales ratio = 1,000,000,000 / 6,666,666,666.67

**Target fixed asset / sales ratio =
15.00%**

c) If sales increase by 13% from the current level of $ 6 billion

New sales = 6 * 1.13 billion = 6,780,000,000

No increase in Fixed asset till $6,666,666,666.67

Target Fixed asset ratio = 15%

Increase in fixed asset to meet the target is calculated

15% = Increase in fixed asset / ( 6780000000 - 6666666666.67)

I**ncrease in Fixed asset = $17,000,000**
