    Hi, if you divide 0.43 (the contribution per unit made) by 0.002 (the no. of machine hours to make one unit) = £215 contribution per machine hour.

    So in other words each unit produced generates 0.43 in contribution and if the machine were to run for one hour it would generate £215. In terms of units this means 215/0.43 = 500 units that are made in 1 hour. Hope that helps....

    Know what you mean about your head hurting - i've just been doing process accounts!
