    The contribution margin per unit is $370

    Explanation:

    Contribution margin per unit is the amount that each additional unit sold contributes towards a company's fixed costs and profit and calculated by following formula:

    Contribution Margin per Unit = Sales Price - Variable Cost per Unit

    Variable Cost per Unit = Marketing and administrative cost per unit + Manufacturing overhead cost per unit + Direct labor cost per unit + Direct materials cost per unit = $50 + $80 + $100 + $200 = $430

    Contribution Margin per Unit = $800 - $430 = $370
