Compute the 2011 gross-margin percentage for each of Pharmacare?s three market segments.The gross-margin percentage is calculated using the following formula: [(Revenue ? Cost of goods sold) ?

Compute the costs of Widnes and St. Helen's cases using Partner and Associates Direct Cost and Indirect Cost categories:Direct CostsWidnes - 104 hrsSt. Helens - 96 hrsTotal - 200 hrsPartner @ $100/hr$2400$5600$8000Associate @ $50/hr$4000$2000$6000Research Support labor$1600$3400$5000Computer time$500$1300$1800Travel and Allowances$600$4400$5000Telephones/faxes$200$1000$1200Photocopying$250$750$1000Total Direct Costs$9550$18450$28000Indirect CostsPartner @$57.50$1380$3220$4600Associate @ $20$1600$800$2400Total Indirect Costs$2980$4020$7000Total Costs$12530$22470$350002. This multiple direct-cost categories and multiple indirect-cost categories approach can assist Wigans when they decide how much to bid on a new project. Understanding the level of expertise needed on a new case will allow them to allocate the appropriate number of partners and associates to the case, and determine how many labor hours each will need to complete the work. This approach is a very accurate way of estimating how much of their resources will be needed to complete the client work.2.
