Machine Hours Cost per Machine Hour Total Cost 40,000 \$0.80 \$32,000 32,000 \$1.00 \$32,000 Accordingly, janitorial costs would be expected to be \$32,000 at 37,000 machine hours (or at any other level of machine hours within the relevant range). 2.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
