The allocation is the first first solution next to the title, correct?

I am not able to get what you are referring to.

Are you talking about " Allocation Rate for general administration"
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Yes, gen admin, facilities, financial services...and so forth. The titles to the left

Let me recheck.
Yes they are correct. These amount are based on the initial data

The direct costs to each of the support departments are
General Administration $2,000,000
Facilities 5,000,000
Financial services 3,000,000

and they other figures are obatined from the selected data.

Ok, I am not sure if I did this correctly... please let me know if you received a total of $72.

The question was posted for $60. You need to add the remaining amount as Bonus.
