The owner of Warwick Printing is planning direct labor needs for the upcoming year. The owner has provided you with the following information for next year’s plans:

Each color on the banner must be printed one at a time. Thus, for example, a four-color banner will need to be run through the printing operation four separate times. The total production volume last year was 800 banners, as shown below.
