koi define kar e ga requirments k bary ma

muje b samjh nahi aa raha k pucha kiya hy?

at sptil off point

Product O

(17000 divided by 45000) x 42000

Product O

(28000 divided by 45000) x 42000

After processing

Product O

(32000 divided by 57000) x 42000

Product P

(25000 divided by 57000) x 42000

ye calcutaion hy .......aab koi batye ga k kis ki processing kanri hy kiss ki nahi........meny with or without dono processing kar di hyn

i think Product P ko processing ki zarort nahi hy.................lakin waja nahi pata

Further processing k bad product O ki value chunky bhar jati hy to ye monetory disadvantge hoga ya phir advantage................?????????? isi tarah product P ki kam ho jati hy to kiya ye advantge my hoga ????????????

Monetory advantage or disadvantage is based on profit received on selling of product

shakeel ahmed aap samjha dain kuch 

mujhe lagta hai processing se phele dono product ki cost allocate karkey  dekhna hai cost se sale compare kr ke ke profit hai ya loss and than processing ke baad cost jo process 1 main aai aur processing ke baad accumulate kr ke dekhna hai ke accumulated cost ko sales se compare kar ke profit aaraha hai ya loss . but i am not 100% sure
