(Do not round intermediate calculations. Enter your answer as a percent rounded to 2 decimal places. Omit the "%" sign in your response.)

Solution

Current Sales are $320,000. This is 86% of fixed asset capacity. To find the sales at maximum 100% capacity we divide $320,000 by 0.86 which gives $372,093.

Additional sales required to acheive maximum sales will be $372,093 - $320,000 = $52,093

The maximum sales growth as a percentage would be $52,093 / $320,000 = 0.1628 or 16.28%

Thus Maximum sales growth : 16.28
