Cost of goods sold .... 3,524,600
Store staff salaries ..... 235,320
Store rental & utilities .... 145,290
Other miscellaneous expenses . 97,000

Digging deeper, you find the following additional data:

The Great Plains Cooperative Society (GPC) offers a wide range

Moreover, you find that $180,000 of the salaries are directly attributable to groceries and $230,000 to the wine department. The remainder is for persons common to both departments. The store manager informs you that it is not meaningful to separate out the area devoted for wine separately as the aisles and displays are intermingled.

Required:
