Solution Preview

1. a. underallocated
since the allocated costs are lower than actual costs

2. First calculate the predetermined overhead rate = Estimated overhead/estimated machine hours = 100,000/20,000=$5 per machine hour
Allocated overhead = Predetermined overhead rate X Actual machine hours = 5 X 25,000=$125,000

3. Actual indirect cost rate = Actual overhead/actual machine hours = 120,000/25,000 = $4.80 per machine ...
