    Service Departments Production Departments

    Support costs $65,000 $55,000 $160,000 $240,000

    Direct labor hours 2,000 1,500 2,000 3,000

    Number of Square footage 800 1,200 2,400 2,600

    The company allocates service department costs using the sequential method. First, S1 costs are allocated on the basis of direct labor hours. Next, S2 costs are allocated on the basis of square footage. The square footage for S1 is assumed to be zero for this purpose. Determine the total support costs allocated to each of the two production departments.
