Hamilton Company, calculate the activity rate for rework.

Hamilton Company manufactures engines. Hamilton produces all the parts necessary for its engines except for one electronic, which is purchased from two local suppliers: Traynor Inc. and Bello Company. Both suppliers are reliable and rarely deliver late; however, Traynor sells the components from Bello, because of the lower price. The total annual demand is 75,000 units.
