It started, completed, and sold only two jobs during March-Job P and Job Q. The following additional information is available for the company as a whole and for Jobs P and Q (all data and questions relate to the month of March):
|Estimated total machine-hours used||2,500||1,500||4,000|
|Estimated total fixed manufacturing overhead||$ 12,250||$ 16,350||$ 20,600|
|Estimated variable manufacturing overhead per machine-hour||$ 2.30||$ 3.10|
|Job P||Job Q|
|Direct materials||$ 22,000||$ 12,500|
|Direct labor cost||$ 28,200||$ 11,100|
|Actual machine-hours used:|
Sweeten Company had no underapplied or overapplied manufacturing overhead costs during the month.
For questions 1-8, assume that Sweeten Company uses a plantwide predetermined overhead rate with machine-hours as the allocation base. For questions 9-15, assume that the company uses departmental predetermined overhead rates with machine-hours as the allocation base in both departments.
