    Rosedale Co. incurs $160,000 of overhead costs in 3 depts. as follows:

    Setup $10,000 40 setups per year
    Machining $110,000 5,000 hrs per year
    Packing 40,000 500 orders per year

    Product one Product two
    setups = 20 setups = 20
    machining hrs = 1,000 machining hrs = 4,000
    orders packed = 150 orders packed = 350

    I would like help figuring out using ABC how much overhead is assigned to Product One each year.
    Thanks.
