6. Refer to Figure 4-10. What is the unit product cost for rug cleaners using activity based costing?

a. \$8.00

b. \$ 7.26

c. \$ 4.00

d. \$ 2.95

Solution 6:

 Determination of activity rate for each activity & allocation of overhead Activity Estimated Overhead Cost Activity Base Usage of Activity Base Activity Rate Rug cleaner Sweeper Usage Allocated Costs Usage Allocated Costs Machining \$170,000.00 Machine hours 30000 \$5.67 20000 \$113,333.33 10000 \$56,666.67 Moving Materials \$90,000.00 Nos of moves 300 \$300.00 140 \$42,000.00 160 \$48,000.00 Setting up \$100,000.00 Nos of Setups 100 \$1,000.00 25 \$25,000.00 75 \$75,000.00 Inspecting products 70000.00 Inspection hours 4000 \$17.50 1600 \$28,000.00 2400 \$42,000.00 Total \$430,000.00 \$208,333.33 \$221,666.67

Total cost of rug cleaner = Prime cost + Allocated overhead = \$200,000 + \$208333.33 = \$408,333.33

Nos of units produced = 100000

Unit product cost = \$408,333.33 / 100000 = \$4.08
