On the June 09 MAC paper Task 2.2 a iv) It asks you to calculate the direct labour cost per hr.

I divided the Direct Labour Cost of £3,600,000 by Labours Hours worked which was 180. This gave me the answer of £20,000. But the answer is £20. Huh

I thought it might be I have put too many zeros but on the question before it asks you to calculate materials cost as a % of turnover. I did this as £6,750,000/£22,500,000 x 100 = 30%. This is correct according to the answers!

So should there be three zeros after the given figures or not?

Look at the column heading. 180 is 180,000 hours
or 180 thousand hours
