Weller Company’s flexible budget for manufacturing overhead (in condensed form) follows:
Cost
Formula
(per machine         Machine-Hours
Overhead Costs            hour)  8,000    9,000    10,000
Variable costs   \$1.05  \$ 8,400 \$ 9,450 \$10,500
Fixed costs       24,800   24,800   24,800
Total Overhead Costs    \$33,200 \$34,250 \$35,300

The following information is available for a recent period:
a. The denominator activity of 8,000 machine-hours was chosen to compute the predetermined overhead rate.
b. At the 8,000 standard machine-hours level of activity, the company should produce 3,200 units of product.
c. The company’s actual operating results were as follows:

Number of units produced  3,500
Actual machine-hours   8,500
Required:
1. Compute the predetermined overhead rate and break it down into variable and fixed cost elements.
2. What were the standard hours allowed for the year’s output?
3. Compute the variable overhead spending and efficiency variances and the fixed overhead budget and volume variances.

Variable Portion of the Predetermined Overhead Rate = ________________

Fixed Portion of the Predetermined Overhead Rate =  ________________

The Standard Hours Allowed for the year’s output =   ________________

Variable Overhead Spending Variance =     ________________

Variable Overhead Efficiency Variance =     ________________

Fixed Overhead Budget Variance =     ________________

Fixed Overhead Volume Variance =     ________________
