1. Lebanon manufactures two versions of a product. Production and cost information show
the following:

Model A Model B
Units produced 100 200
Material moves 10 40
Direct labor hours per 1 2
unit

Under ABC, the materials handling costs of P100,000 allocated to a unit of Model A is:

a. P10
b. P200
c. P133
d. P400
B (20,000/100=200)
2. Iran Manufacturing produces three products. Production and cost information show the
following:

Model F Model A Model Q


Units produced 1000 3000 6000
Direct labor hours 2000 1000 2000
Number of inspections 20 30 50

Using ABC, the inspection costs of P50,000 allocated to each unit of Model F would be

a. P5.00
b. P10.00
c. P20.00
d. Some other number
B (50,000 *.2=10,000/1000=10)
3. Zaire Company is preparing its annual profit plan. As part of its analysis of the profitability
of individual products, the controller estimates the amount of overhead that should be
allocated to the individual product line from the information given as follows:
Wall Specialty
Mirrors Windows
Units produced 25 25
Material moves per product line 5 15
Direct labor hours per unit 200 200
Budgeted materials handling costs P50,000

Under a costing system that allocated overhead on the basis of direct labor hours, the
materials handling costs allocated to one unit of wall mirrors would be

a. P500
b. P1,000
c. P2,000
d. P5,000
B (50,000 *.5 = 25000/25=1000)
4. Under ABC, the material handling costs allocated to one unit of wall mirrors would be

a. P500
b. P1,000
c. P2,000
d. P5,000
A (50000*.5/20/25=500)
5. A company allocates overhead to jobs in process using direct labor costs, raw materials
costs, and machine hours. The overhead applications for the current year are:

100% of direct labor


20% of raw materials
P117 per machine hour

A particular production run incurred the following costs:

Direct labor P8,000


Raw materials P2,000
A total of 140 machine hours were required for the production run

What is the total cost that would be charged to the production run?
a. P18,000
b. P18,400
c. P24,780
d. P34,780
C (140*117=16380+8000+400=24780)
6. Afghanistan Company uses ABC to compute product costs for external. The company
has three activity centers and applies overhead using predetermined overhead rates for
each activity center. Estimates costs and activities for the current year are presented
below for the three activity centers:

Estimated Activity Cost Expected Activity


Activity 1 P61,387 2,300
Activity 2 P34,076 2,800
Activity 3 P69,075 2,500

Activity costs and activities for the current year were as follows:
Actual overhead cost Actual activity
Activity 1 P61,387 2,300
Activity 2 P34,076 2,800
Activity 3 P69,075 2,500

The amount of overhead over or under-applied for Activity 1 during the year was closest
to:

a. P271.90 over-applied
b. P271.90 under-applied
c. P5.00 over-applied
d. P5.00 underapplied
O (SAME AMOUNTS OF ACTUAL AND BUDGETED)
