Manufacturing Ohd $2.00 $3.00
Gross Profit $7.50 $13.80

Tiger Pride's managers have decided to revise their current assignment of overhead costs to reflect the following ABC cost information:
Activity Activity Cost Cost Driver
Supervision $100,920 Direct Labor Hours

ACTIVTIES DEMANDED:
T-SHIRTS SWEATSHIRTS
.75 DLH/Unit 1.2 DLH/Unit
45,000 DLHs 42,000 DLHs
60,000 Inspections 17,500 Inspections

18. Under the revised ABC system, total overhead costs allocated to Sweatshirts will be:

a $48,720
b $76,720
c $224,920
d None of the answers are correct.

19. Under the revised ABC system, overhead cost per unit for the Sweatshirts will be:

a $1.39 per unit
b $1.60 per unit
c $2.19 per unit
d $2.47 per unit

20. Using an ABC system, next year's estimates show manufacturing overhead costs will total $228,300 for 52,000 T-Shirts. If all other T-shirt costs and sales prices remain the same, the profitability that can be expected is:

a $5.41 per T-shirt.
