    I hope this helps as I may calculate this a long winded way.

    I did...

    350 hours x 60 (minutes in an hour) = 21,000 mins
    7410(units) x 3 (minutes per unit) = 22,230 mins

    Minus those 22,230-21,000= 1,230/3= 410

    If you wanted to do this via the hour, I calculated how many units can be made in an hour (60/3=20units), then 7410/20= 370.5, 350 hours available

    Difference between those is 20.5 (370.5-350) then x20 (20.5x 20) = 410

    Hope this helps! Whichever way is easiest for you :)
