Sohr Corporation: calculate overall profit or loss by processing intermediate product

Question

Sohr Corporation processes sugar beets that it purchases from farmers. Sugar beets are processed in batches. A batch of sugar beets costs $54 to buy from farmers and $11 to crush in the company's plant. Two intermediate products, beet fiber and beet juice, emerge from the crushing process. The beet fiber can be sold as is for $16 or processed further for $15 to make the end product industrial fiber that is sold for $66. The beet juice can be sold as is for $49 or processed further for $19 to make the end product refined sugar that is sold for $66.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
