For example, cars have lots ot extras, and computers have software and optional equipment. The production rates of these optional items are often based on a per- centage of the sales of the main product. The following equation helps determine production rates of these optional products. Although this calculation is simple to do on any calculator, using SOLVE means that you don't have to reenter values to calculate many op- tional products for one main product, or try what-if situations."
