Help please Section 1 (e) hours required number of units is 550,000 takes 12 minutes of labour time to assemble, so I thought you would 550,000 * 12, but the answer is 110,000 hours, confused, please could some one help.

Thanks

well wouldnt it be 12 mins so (60/12) 5 in an hour so 550,000/5 = 110,000 hours

I think you just have to work out how many you can produce in one hour then divide it by the units
