|Budgeted cost||Budgeted activity|
|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|
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
