# Am I wrong?

Hello Everyone!

I can't seem to find the right answer to the following case question:

World Cinema is going to make an investment of \$255 000 to open 3 new cinema rooms. 30% of the total investment will go to marketing costs, which equals three-fourths of the construction costs. The remaining amount goes to operation costs of the 3 cinema rooms in 1 year. How much does it cost to operate 1 cinema room in a month?

After calculation, I find Marketing Costs (76 500\$), Construction Costs (102 000\$) and Total Operation Costs for 3 cinema rooms in a year (76 500\$) so Operation Costs for 1 cinema room in a month (2 125\$).

Does someone know why is the solution supposed to be 2 550\$?

• Date ascending
• Date descending

Agree with you and Vlad on the result. The given solution seems flawed.

Cheers, Sidi

Hi,

Got 2125 as well

Best

No, you are not wrong :)

I confirm 2125\$

Do you know the source of the case? Worth double-checking with them where the discrepancies come from (I don´t think that someone who publishes a case makes a silly mistake like this, there must be a piece of info that got lost in the way)

Cheers,

Clara

Confirmed, I've got the same number as others.

Good luck,

Same as the others here. Note that ~5% of cases in my experience have some kind of math error...the creators are human after all!
