#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

- Fabrication department Overheads:

Total Overheads = \$86,500

Total Machine hours required for RIngs = 1080 * 5 = 5400

Total Machine hours required for DIngs = 1890 * 10 = 18900

Total Machine hours required = 24,300

Overhead per hour to be charged = \$86,500 / \$24,300 = \$3.56

A. Overhead for a single Ring = 5*\$3.56 = \$17.8

- Assembly department Overheads:

Total Overheads = \$72,000

Total labor hours required for Rings = 1080 * 2 = 2160

Total labor hours required for DIngs = 1890 * 5 = 9450

Total Machine hours required = 11,610

Overhead per hour to be charged = \$72,000 / \$11,610 = \$6.202

B. Overhead for a single Ring = 2*\$6.202 = \$12.404

Total Overhead for a ring (A+B) = \$17.8 + \$12.40 = \$30.2

Option D is correct.
