1)

 Budgeted cost Budgeted activity Highest activity 24000 7000 Lowest activity 16000 3000 change in cost /activity 24000-16000=8000 7000-3000=4000

Variable overhead rate =Change in cost /Chnage in hours

= 8000 /4000

= $2 per hour 2)Budgeted fixed overheas =$ 10000

 Budgeted cost - Total variable overhead = Fixed overhead Highest activity 24000 2*7000=14000 10000 Lowest activity 16000 2*3000=6000 10000

3)

Budgeted factory overhead rate= Variable overhead rate +Fixed overhead rate at normal capacity

3 = 2 + [10000/Normal hours ]

3 - 2 = 10000/normal hours

1 = 10000/normal hours

Normal hours = 10000/1

= 10000 hours

Normal capacity hours = 10000 hours

4)Applied overhead =Actual volume * overhead rate

= 5000 * 3

= 15000
