Are you talking about contribution per unit? = breakeven?
Contribution per unit = selling price per unit  variable costs per unit
fixed costs / contribution per unit = breakeven0 
It's just getting it clear in your head
If you want to know the machine hours per unit then divide the machine hours required by the number of units produced.
Contribution per machine hour is just contribution per unit divided by machine hour per unit  the two per unit bits cancel each other out and the figure you get is contribution per machine hour.
Which book are you using because it's definitely in the Osborne one.0
