Question: Darmor Ltd has three products, which require the same production facilities. Information about the production costs for one unit of its products is as follows:

Product                                    X             Y             Z

                                                £             £             £

Labour: Skilled                         6             9             3

             Unskilled                     2             4            10

Materials                                 12           25           14

Other variables costs               3             7             7

Fixed Costs                              5            10            10

All labour and materials costs are variable. Skilled labour is paid £12 an hour, and unskilled labour is paid £10 an hour. All references to labour costs above, are based on basic rates of pay. Skilled labour is scarce, which means that the business could sell more than the maximum that it is able to make of any of the three products. Product X is sold in a regulated market, and the regulators have set a price of £30 per unit for it.

Required:

(a) State, with supporting workings, the price that must be charged for products Y and Z, such that the business would find it equally profitable to make and sell any of the three products.
