3.  Assume instead of using ABC costing, the company used a traditional costing method that assigns overhead using a predetermined rate based on machine hours.  Based on the original numbers, total overhead for the year is $960,000 and the total estimated machine hours are 125,000.
a.  Compute the predetermined rate using the information in item 3.


                 960,000.00  



                 125,000.00



b.  Compute the total cost assigned to jobs 320 and 321 by substituting the traditional overhead for the ABC overhead that you computed in 2 above
Overhead assigned Hours Rate Total

 Job 320                                 400    

 Job 321                                 600    







   Job 320   Job 321
