Charles lackey operates a bakery in idahoâ€‹ falls, idaho. because of its excellent product and excellentâ€‹ location, demand has increased by 45â€‹% in the last year. on far too manyâ€‹ occasions, customers have not been able to purchase the bread of their choice. because of the size of theâ€‹ store, no new ovens can be added. at a staffâ€‹ meeting, one employee suggested ways to load the ovens differently so that more loaves of bread can be baked at one time. this new process will require that the ovens be loaded byâ€‹ hand, requiring additional manpower. this is the only thing to be changed. the bakery currently makes 1 comma 600 loaves per month. the pay will be â€‹$8 per hour for employees and each employee works 160 hours per month. charles lackey can also improve the yield by purchasing a new blender. the new blender will mean an increase in his investment. this new blender will mean an increase in his costs of â€‹$100 perâ€‹ month, but he will achieve the same new outputâ€‹ (an increase to 2 comma 320.00â€‹) as the change in labor hours. â€‹a) current productivity for 640 work hoursâ€‹ = nothing â€‹loaves/dollar â€‹(round your response to three decimalâ€‹ places).
