3.Using information next page. Compute and interpret the predetermined manufacturing overhead rate for Wall Décor.
Wall Décor allocates its overhead on the basis of cost of print. The predetermined overhead rate is 28%, computed as follows.
The predetermined overhead rate = Total expected manufacturing overhead
Total expected cost of prints
The expected manufacturing overhead is $375,200
The total expected cost of print = number of expected units sold × cost of print
The cost of prints is equal to (80,000×12) + (15,000×16) + (7,000×20) = $1,340,000
Thus, the predetermined overhead rate is 375,200/1,340,000 = 28% or $0.28 per cost of print.

(c) Lambeau Field print in wood frame with mat (base cost of print $20)
Direct Materials
Print Cost $20.00
Frame and Glass 6.00
Matting 4.00
Direct Labor ($12×10/60 minutes+$21×30/60 minutes) 12.50

Total product cost = $48.10

5. (a) How much of the total of overhead cost is expected to allocated to (a) unframed prints?
