Hi and welcome to Just Answer! I'm happy to help answer your Finance questions. Feel free to interject at any time if you need clarification.

A) Contribution Margin = Sales - Variable Costs (1,250,000-200,000)= 1,050,000

Contribution Margin/Sales = .84

B. 750,000 * .4 = 300,000 contribution margin,
300,000 - 225,000 fixed costs = 75,000 income from operations
