\$18.20 per minute

\$129.22 per unit

\$95.76 per unit

## Expert Answer

 TC GL NG Contribution margin/unit(Selling price-Variable costs) (\$494.4-\$395.2) =\$99.2 (\$449.43-\$320.21) =\$129.22 (\$469.68-\$373.92) =\$95.76 Contribution margin/minute(Contribution margin/Minutes on the constraint) (\$99.2/8) =\$12.4 (\$129.22/7.1) =\$18.2 (\$95.76/7.60) =\$12.6

Hence the company should be willing to pay for the least profitable product (TC) ie \$12.4/minute(A).
