    Hi Wad2001
    Unit contribution based on the changes is £22 (£38-£10-£6 as Labour and Material costs per unit are completely variable).

    Revised total contribution based on the changes will therefore be;
    £22*125,000 units = £2,750,000

    Original total contribution was £24*100,000 = £2,400,000.

    Difference is therefore £350,000.
