Answer:

the least profitable is $39.66 per unit or 9.72 per minute

Explanation:

The computation is shown below:

The Price Per Unit for WX is

= $355.20 - $259.22

= $95.98

Price Per Unit for KD is

= $228.48 - $173.04

= $55.44

And, the Price Per Unit for FS is

= $199.23 - $159.57

= $39.66

Now

Price per Minute for WX is

= $95.98 ÷ 7.70

= 12.46

Price Per Minute for KD is

= $55.44 ÷ 4.50

= 12.32

And, Price Per Minute for FS is

= $55.44 ÷ 5.70

= 9.72

So here the least profitable is $39.66 per unit or 9.72 per minute

This is the answer but the same is not provided
