Answer #1

1) If at 95% sales are $3,000,000,000, then at 100% capacity sales would be -

$3,000,000,000/ 0.95 = $3,157,894,736.84

2) Target fixed assets to sales ratio = (fixes assets / sales) × 100 = ($2,800,000,000/ $3,157,894,736.84) × 100 = 88.6666666 or 88.67%

3) The ratio same as above ( in 2).

New sales = $3,000,000,000 × 1.08 = $3,240,000,000

Target Fixed assets/ sales = 0.886666666

Or, New Fixed assets/ New sales = 0.886666666

Or, New Fixed assets = 0.886666666 x $3,240,000,000 = $2,872,799,997.84

Increase required = $2,872,799,997.84 - $2,800,000,000 = $72,799,997.84

(There can be a rounding off difference. If their is, try with 88.67%).
