How many cluster weighers do you need for this?

Amount of cluster weighers needed:    
Amount of boxes per hour weighed:
Amount of working hours per day:  
Working days per year:  

Explanation of the pre entered values:

Amount of packages per year: A yield of 55 kg per square meter per year has been taken. The average weight of a box is 5 kg: 55 * 10000 / 5 = 110,000

Average price per year:
An average price has been taken of EUR 0.90 for cluster tomatoes.

Average weight gain per package: Research has shown that a regularly packed box has an overweight of 100 - 150 grams. With the cluster weigher a maximum over weight of 20 grams can be achieved. A gain of 80 -130 grams is therefore possible. The lowest value has been taken.

Amount of boxes per hour weighed: Using a cluster weigher, 350 to 400 boxes can be processed per hour. A very low value is taken here: 200 boxes per hour.

Amount of working hours per day: A normal working day has 8 hours.

Working days per year: A year has 52 weeks. On average every week has 5 working days: 52 * 5 = 260. 250 has been taken as a proper value.
