    have two jobs, No. 9823 and No. 9824, that are complete, although overhead has not
    yet been applied. The company wants to know what each job's cost would be under alternative
    overhead allocation rates based on: (1) direct labor cost, (2) direct labor
    hours, and (3) machine hours. Estimates for this year are as follows:

    Direct labor cost $240,000
    Direct labor hours 20,000
    Machine hours 6,000
    Overhead costs $136,000

    Depreciation on machinery accounts for 75 percent of the overhead costs. The job-cost
    sheets show the following:
    Job 9823 Job 9824
    Direct material $855 $1,650
    Direct labor cost $1,020 $1,020
    Direct labor hours 85 68
    Machine hours 100 200

    a. Determine the overhead allocation rate under the three suggested allocation
    bases. Round to two decimal places.

    b. Calculate the cost of Job 9823 and Job 9824 using each of the three bases. Round to
    two decimal places.

    c. Discuss which allocation base appears preferable.
