Answer #1

Estimated overheads = $500,000

predetermined overhead rate = ?

Actual overhead = $540,000

Overapplied overhead = $20,000

Overhead applied = ?

Overapplied overhead = Overhead applied - Actual overhead

20,000 = Overhead applied - 540,000

Overhead applied = $560,000

Overhead applied = Actual direct labor hour x predetermined overhead rate

560,000 = 32,000 x predetermined overhead rate

predetermined overhead rate = $17.50 per direct labor hour
