Hi Linda,
Thank you for your help. I appreciate the answer, but can you explain how to approach this question? I'd like to understand how you arrived at $40. I got this question wrong on a recent exam and I'm having trouble understanding how to approach these types of questions in the future.

Thanks again,

NRV (Net Rel Value) = 50 - 10 = $40 (Upper Limit)
RC (Replacement Cost) = 43
NRV - Normal Profit = 40 - (50 x 40%) = 20 (Lower Limit)

So the market value from above would be $40 and the cost is 45. So the answer is $40.
