I think im making a fairly simple question harder than it is but im just not understanding it!
Its from the December 2007 PEV paper, task 1.2  the standard cost card... im not understanding where the unit price for teabags comes from the 0.006?
And i cannot get to the direct labour and fixed production overheads!
Any help would be much appreciated to get me out of this muddle!!!
thankyou!

The third bullet point on the standard cost card additional data says:
Tea bags cost 0.6 pence per bag
Well 1 pence = £0.01
So 0.6 pence = £0.006Sandy

 Budgeted labour hours are 4,000 per month
 One machine can package 5,000 bags per hour and requires one operator
We know the operator is paid £10 per hour Fixed production overheads are absorbed on the basis of direct labour hours
 Fixed production overheads are £200,000 per month
 Budgeted production is 20,000 batches of 1,000 tea bags per month
£200,000 divided by 20,000 batches = £10.00 per batch
as each batch takes 0.2 hours then the OAR is £10/0.2 = £50.00 per hourSandy
