Direct materials

The Calibri Company produces three products: F,G and H. The selling price, variable costs, and contribution margin for one unit of each product follow:
Product
F G H
Selling price \$40 \$110 \$50
Variable costs:
Direct materials \$16 \$25 \$20
Direct labor \$11 \$20 \$12
Variable manufacturing overhead \$10 \$10 \$8
Total variable costs \$37 \$55 \$40
Contribution margin \$3 \$55 \$10
Contribution margin ratio 7.5% 50% 20%

One or two major machines used to produce these products has broken down and a new one is on backorder so the company is down to one machine. Product F takes 0.20 machine hours to produce one unit, Product G takes 11 machine hours to produce one unit, and Product H takes 2.5 machine hours. There are 1,000 machine hours available on the new machine.
