Hi, I am struggling to work out q 9 assesment 2
How do I do this?0 
can someone help in 8 b) also, why is 0 in material and 22500 in labour ?0

is the figure from 4.5 x 5000 = 22500 ?0

Materials are limited to 55,000kg. Jackal needs 10,000kg (5,000u x 2kg) & Hyena needs 30,000kg (10,000u x 3kg)
As such, we have 15,000kg more than required to meet our maximum sales demand, thus no scarce resource and thus we wouldn't pay anything for more material as we don't require it.
Labour  We have 20,000hrs capacity but require 25,000 to meet demand. We know contribution for Hyena is £4.50/hr so if we pay any more than this then we aren't making any contribution and thus it is pointless. At least if we take the £4.50/hr hit on 5,000hrs we've already contributed £4.50 x 20,000hrs so the remaining 5,000hrs will just break even.
I think this is correct, someone please correct me if I'm wrong.0
