what a nightmare!!! section 2 the variances completely different, with two materials to calculated instead of the usual one!!
Section 1 is not easier too...how come the production is 5,000,000 units, each unit requires 10grams of plastic and the answer shows total plastic is 50,000?
For me should be 500,000!!!where I get wrong?
many thanks for any replies!

oh I found out why...they request total kilogram of plastic, not grams...
incredible, also these things I have to worry about!!0 
multiply by 0.01 as there are 1000 grams in kilogram0

what about the 30000 blades? do you know how to get that amount?
if each unit required 6 blades, 5.000.000/6 = 833.333??!?!?:confused1:0 
is this the same paper?0

Each unit requires 6 blades, therefore 5,000,000 units x 6 = 30,000,000 total unit of blades
Total cost of blade is the total number of blades, 30,000,000 x ยฃ0.10 = ยฃ3,000,0000 
thanks Tube! this paper is destroying completely my confidence in MAC:crying:0

I found both this paper and the June 08 papers hard0

I just dont get the question at all!
example the total hours per 35 employees is 5600, then it says each employee can produce 1000 kwiks
so how come the required labour hours required for the production is 5000 (units 5,000,000/1000) when 1000kwiks is produce by 1 employee, not 35!!!0 
the number each employee can produce in this instance is irrelevant as there is no overtime required.
you only need to know how long it will take to produce what you need0

I don't get it, there is overtime....
if the questions says that 1000 kwiks is produce by each employee, sure I have to multiply by 35 employees to get the total, no?
instead the answer assume that 1000kwiks is the total of units produced
Labour
โข Kwikshave Limited employs 35 people in production who each work a standard 8 hour day 5 day week.
โข Each month has exactly 20 working days.
โข Each employee can produce 1,000 kwiks per hour using one machine.

are you trying to do labour budget?0

are you trying to do labour budget?
yes, the question is:
calculate (c) direct labour hours budget in hours and ยฃ
Answer for month 1
Production 5,000,000
Units produced per labour hour 1,000
Required labour hours 5,000
Number of employees 35
Available hours 5,600
Hours at basic rate ยฃ5,600
I don't get the required labour hour of 5,000 if the 1000 is made by 1 employee, not 35!0
