PMI produced and sold 60,000 units of EX300 at a price of $20 per unit and 12,500 units of TX500 at a price of $40 per unit. The company's traditional cost system allocates manufacturing overhead to products using a plantwide overhead rate and direct labor dollars as the allocation base.

The company has created an activity-based costing system to evaluate the profitability of its products. PMI's ABC implementation team concluded that $50,000 and $100,000 of the company's advertising expenses could be directly traced to EX300 and TX500, respectively. The remainder of the selling and administrative expenses was organization-sustaining in nature. The ABC team also distributed the company's manufacturing overhead to four activities as shown below:
