  34. Task 1 $8,243.95 savings Essential Skills Demonstrated: Measurement and Calculation (3) Additional Skills: Document Use (2)

  35. One way to get this answer... 1. Identify what is required: the cost savings to the client. 2. Find the number of square feet to be tiled. 3. Locate the column “Item or Description” in the Estimate Detail Form. 4. Scan the column for the key word “tile”. 5. Decide that 650 SQ’ is the number of square feet to be tiled. 6. Identify what is required: 10% for waste allowance on materials. 7. Set up the problem to find the total required including waste allowance: (square feet x waste percentage) + square feet = square feet to be tiled including waste allowance. 8. Calculate: (650 x 10%) + 650 = 715 square feet. 9. Identify what is required: the cost for porcelain and ceramic tiles to cover 715 square feet. 10. Set up the problem to find the cost for porcelain tiles: price / sq. ft. Coverage x 715 square feet = cost for porcelain tiles to cover 715 square feet. 11. Calculate: $16.25 x 715 = $11,618.75. 12. Set up problem to find the cost for ceramic tiles: price / sq. ft. Coverage x 715 square feet = cost for ceramic tiles to cover 715 square feet. 13. Calculate: $4.72 sq. ft. x 715 = $3,374.80. 14. Identify what is required: the cost savings to the client by using ceramic tiles. 15. Set up the problem to find the cost difference: Total porcelain price for coverage – Total ceramic price for coverage = cost savings. 16. Calculate: $11,618.75 - $3,374.80 = $8,243.95. 17. Decide the savings to the customer would be $8,243.95.

  36. Task 2 At least 72 golfers are required to meet the target profit. Essential Skills Demonstrated: Scheduling or Budgeting and Accounting (2)

Locate $2,500. 4. Scan the task statement to find the cost that golfers will pay for the event. 5. Locate $90. 6. Scan the task statement to find the profit earned per golfer for the event. 7. Locate $35. 8. Set up problem: (minimum number of golfers x $35) = $2,500. 9. Calculate: (X x $35) = $2,500. 2,500 / 35 = X. 2,500 / 35 = 71.43. 10.
