Request Description

Costello Corporation manufactures a single product. The standard cost per unit of product is shown below.

Direct materials—3 pound plastic at $6.24 per pound $ 18.72
Direct labor—2.00 hours at $12.00 per hour 24.00
Variable manufacturing overhead 13.00
Fixed manufacturing overhead 19.00
Total standard cost per unit $74.72

The predetermined manufacturing overhead rate is $16 per direct labor hour ($32.00 ÷ 2.00). It was computed from a master manufacturing overhead budget based on normal production of 10,600 direct labor hours (5,300 units) for the month. The master budget showed total variable costs of $68,900 ($6.50 per hour) and total fixed overhead costs of $100,700 ($9.50 per hour). Actual costs for October in producing 3,700 units were as follows.

Direct materials (11,270 pounds) $ 71,452
Direct labor (7,210 hours) 89,260
Variable overhead 89,035
Fixed overhead 31,455

Total manufacturing costs $281,202
