data concerning its annual overhead costs and its activity cost pools:
Overhead Costs:
The "Other" activity cost pool consists of the costs of idle capacity and organization-sustaining
costs. The amount of activity for the year is as follows:
a) Prepare the first-stage allocation of overhead costs to the activity cost pools by filling in the

b) Compute the activity rates (i.e., cost per unit of activity) for the Making Awnings and Job
Support activity cost pools by filling in the table below:
2. Lionel Corporation manufactures two products, Product B and Product H. Product H is of
fairly recent origin, having been developed as an attempt to enter a market closely related to that
of Product B. Product H is the more complex of the two products, requiring two hours of direct
labour time per unit to manufacture, compared to one hour of direct labour time for Product B.
Product H is produced on an automated production line.
Overhead is currently assigned to the products on the basis of direct labour hours. The company
estimated it would incur $450,000 in manufacturing overhead costs and produce 7,500 units of
Product H and 30,000 units of Product B during the current year. Unit costs for materials and
direct labour are:
a) Compute the predetermined overhead rate under the current method of allocation, and
determine the unit product cost of each product for the current year.
b) The company's overhead costs can be attributed to four major activities. These activities and
the amount of overhead cost attributable to each for the current year are given below:
Using the data above and an activity-based costing approach, determine the unit product cost of
each product for the current year.
3. Selected data about Pitkin Company's manufacturing operations at two levels of activity are

Required: Using the high-low method, estimate the cost formula for manufacturing overhead.
Assume that both direct material and direct labour are variable costs.

constant from month to month.
a) What is the unit product cost for the month under variable costing?
b) Prepare an income statement for the month using the contribution format and the variable
costing method.
c) Without preparing an income statement, determine the absorption costing operating income
for the month. (Hint: Use the reconciliation method.)
