    The textbook gives a definition 'the quantity of work that can be achieved by one worker in one hour, at a standard level of performance'.

    If you are referring to question 3.4 in the Costing workbook, you would calculate as follows:

    1. 160 units of product Exe @ 5 mins = 800mins

    2. 100 units of product Wye @ 6 mins = 600mins

    3. 250 units of product Zed @ 4 mins = 1000mins

    Therefore standard labour hours are 40 hours (2400 mins)

    Thank you, I feel like such an idiot cos I had the 2400 but didn't divide it into hours.
