The results of the ABC calculations are in columns E, H, and J. The ABC calculations are as follows:
a. Compute pool rate for material-handling activity:
Activity cost pool
/
Cost driver quantity
=
Pool rate
52,500
/
100
=
525.00

b. Compute total activity cost for each product line:

Manufacturing overheads is the overall indirect cost incurred in manufacturing a product. It includes all the indirect manufacturing costs. Direct material and direct labor will not be included in the manufacturing costs, as they will be separately reported in prime costs. Generally, following are the examples of manufacturing costs:
a. Indirect labor
b. Indirect material
c. Other indirect manufacturing costs.
Pre-determine overheads are the rates developed by the companies to assign the cost of products before they are completed and shipped. These rates enable the companies to mot to wait foe the actual completion of production.

2. There will be no impact of
