    In December 2010, Perez Company established its predetermined overhead rate for jobs produced during
    year 2011, by using the following cost predictions: overhead costs of $600,000, and direct labor costs of $500,000. At year end of 2011, the company's records show that actual overhead costs for the year are $680,000. Actual direct labor cost had been assigned to jobs as follows.
    1. Determine the predetermined overhead rate for the year 2011.
    2. Set up a T-account for Factory Overhead and enter the overhead costs incurred and the amounts applied to jobs during the year using the predetermined overhead rate.
    3. Determine whether overhead is over-applied or under-applied (and the amount) during the year.
    4. Prepare the adjusting entry to allocate any over- or underapplied overhead to Cost of Goods Sold.
