Sweeten Company had no jobs in progress at the beginning of March and no beginning inventories. The company has two manufacturing departments—Molding and Fabrication. It started, completed, and sold only two jobs during March—Job P and Job Q. The following additional information is available for the company as a whole and for Jobs P and Q (all data and questions relate to the month of March):

 Molding Fabrication Total Estimated total machine-hours used 2,500 1,500 4,000 Estimated total fixed manufacturing overhead \$ 13,750 \$ 17,250 \$ 31,000 Estimated variable manufacturing overhead per machine-hour \$ 2.90 \$ 3.70

Sweeten Company had no underapplied or overapplied manufacturing overhead costs during the month.

Required:

For questions 1-8, assume that Sweeten Company uses a plantwide predetermined overhead rate with machine-hours as the allocation base. For questions 9-15, assume that the company uses departmental predetermined overhead rates with machine-hours as the allocation base in both departments.

7. Assume that Sweeten Company used cost-plus pricing (and a markup percentage of 80% of total manufacturing cost) to establish selling prices for all of its jobs. What selling price would the company have established for Jobs P and Q? What are the selling prices for both jobs when stated on a per unit basis assuming 20 units were produced for Job P and 30 units were produced for Job Q?

 Estimated variable manufacturing overhead for Moulding department is (2.90 x 2,500 hrs) \$7,250 Estimated Variable manufacturing overhead for fabrication department is ( 3.70 x 1,500 hrs) \$5,550 Total fixed manufacturing overhead 31,000 Total 43,800

Predetermined Overhead Rate = \$43,800/ 4,000 = 10.95 per hour
