Correct answer:

A =  6
B =  7
C =  4750 eur
D =  60 d
E =  500 %
F =  83.3 %

Step-by-step explanation:

s=950 g=5700 A=g/s=5700/950=6
B=(14 g)/(12 s)=(14 5700)/(12 950)=7
C=gs=5700950=4750 eur
D=365 s/g=365 950/5700=60 d
E=100 sC=100 9504750=950100 4750=950475000=500%
F=100 gC=100 57004750=5700100 4750=5700475000=83.3%
