Length x Width = Square Inches per Unit

Units x Square Inches per Unit = Total Square Inches

(Base Setup Min) + (Units x Min per Unit) + (Total Sq Inches x Min per Square Inch) = Total Min

If Time per M option selected, divide Total Min by 1000

(Total Minutes / 60) x J% = Estimated Hours

Estimated Hours x Rate = Cost $

Cost $ x Markup % = Markup $

Cost $ + Markup $ = Sell $
