Junior Jimmy Juicers Ltd (JJJ) is a company that specialises in nutritional juices that are made of 100% fruit with no preservatives or additives. The company (JJJ) has been doing extremely well and has a customer base of regular customers who purchase a juice at least once a week. Juices are sold in two (2) sizes namely regular (RG) and large (LG), with each size attracting a different mark-up on cost price. Historical trends show that customers enjoy buying the large size juices of specific flavours, resulting in those flavours being more popular than the other juices. Less popular flavours are usually sold in regular sizes.

Due to the steady growth in JJJ’s customer base, they were looking to expand their juice range to include an energy supplement. The inclusion of an energy supplement will give JJJ an opportunity to tap into a larger customer base. The additional product, which consists of a juice flavour and an energy supplement will be categorised under a new enerjuice code. As the Microsoft Excel guru, JJJ’s management team has asked you to assist them in understanding the formulae that were used by their former spreadsheet analyst.
