    Compute predetermined overhead rates, apply overhead, and calculate under- or over applied overhead.

    Acquatic Manufacturing uses a job order cost system in each of its three manufacturing departments. Manufacturing overhead is applied to jobs on the basis of direct labor cost in Department A, direct labor hours in Department B, and machine hours in Department C. In establishing the predetermined overhead rates for 2005 the following estimates were made for the year.

    Department
    A B C
    Manufacturing overhead $930,000 $800,000 $750,000
    Direct labor cost $600,000 $100,000 $600,000
    Direct labor hours 50,000 40,000 40,000
    Machine hours 100,000 120,000 150,000

    During January, the job cost sheets showed the following costs and production data.

    Department
    A B C
    Direct materials used $92,000 $86,000 $64,000
    Direct labor cost $48,000 $35,000 $50,400
    Manufacturing overhead incurred $76,000 $74,000 $61,500
    Direct labor hours 4,000 3,500 4,200
    Machine hours 8,000 10,500 12,600

    (a) 155%, $20, $5
    Compute the total manufacturing costs assigned to jobs in January in each department.
    (b) $214,400, $191,000 $177,400
