    Are you talking about contribution per unit? = breakeven?

    Contribution per unit = selling price per unit - variable costs per unit

    fixed costs / contribution per unit = breakeven

    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.
