Question 4

overstates high volume products.

overstates low volume products.

understates high volume products.

understates low volume products.

Question 5

The predetermined overhead rate for manufacturing overhead for 2008 is $4.00 per direct labor hour. Employees are expected to earn $5.00 per hour and the company is planning on paying its employees $100,000 during the year. However, only 75% of the employees are classified as “direct labor.” What was the estimated manufacturing overhead for 2008?
