 Ashini said: (Feb 3, 2011) 1000-500-100-100 = 300

 Snigdha Mukherjee said: (May 13, 2011) The amount of intermediate consumption is deducted from the total amount. Here it is 1000 - 500 - 100 - 100 = 300

 Ria said: (Jul 21, 2011) In calculation of value added should we subtract the wage payment? I guess we should minus the value of intermediate purchase only, here copper & other material.

 Devi said: (Jul 6, 2012) Worth of utensils=1000. Expenses include copper worth, wage& material purchased=500+100+100=700. Value added=1000-700=300.

 Kotrsha Kunchur said: (Mar 28, 2015) 1000-500-100-100 = 300 this is the process of value added.

 Mahaveer said: (Dec 24, 2015) It is the value added to all the input costs i.e., copper, wages, and other materials. Value addition=Output value-Input value.

 Momo said: (Apr 26, 2018) Wages are not subtracted. Value added is thus defined as the gross receipts of a firm minus the cost of goods and services purchased from other firms. Value added includes wages, salaries, interest, depreciation, rent, taxes and profit.
