the questions are in the file.
28. 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.

Galaxy Toys Internal Memo
To: Harry Wilson, Controller
Fm: Gary Resnick, Executive Vice President
As you know, we won't start recording many sales until October when stores start accepting
shipments from us for the Christmas season. Meanwhile, we are producing flat-out and are
building up our finished goods inventories so that we will be ready to ship next month.
Unfortunately, we are in a bind right now since it looks like the net income for the quarter
ending on Sept 30 is going to be pretty awful. This may get us in trouble with the bank
since they always review the quarterly financial reports and may call in our loan if they
don't like what they see. Is there any possibility that we could change the classification of
some of our period costs to product costs--such as the rent on the finished goods
Please let me know as soon as possible. The President is pushing for results.

under-or-overapplied overhead for the year.

overhead is allocated to the appropriate accounts rather than closed out directly to Cost of Goods Sold.
28. 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.
