5. Your factory produces 5 styles of coats. There are 5 rectangular areas (length and width in ft. are given) for each style of coat. Workers are paid \$25 per hour. From the data below, find for each style:

1) the total wholesale \$, 2) the total wages paid, 3) the total production cost, 4) the costs + wages as % of wholesale \$. Remember wholesale \$ is only for acceptable coats as we don’t sell rejects. Production costs are in dollars.

Style of coat: length of area width of area #acceptable #rejected prod. cost\$ each coat/sq. ft. wholesale\$/coat # worker hrs/coat
