107Contribution per limiting factor is just contribution per unit / direct labour hours. Jackal £7 / 1 (the one comes from the table £6 per hour and the total is £6 meaning 1 hours is used) Hyena is £9 / 2 (because 2 hours have been used)

25How do I do this?

2323140As 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.
