not multiple choice

actul* cost per labor hour = total

15000 * 4 = \$6000

\$60000 - 436000 = \$24000

The answer would be 24000 but it will not be calculated as above.

The fixed cost should be allocated using long run capacity and the budgeted fixed cost.

So the Answer would be (18000/(18000+12000))*40000 = \$24000

Whenever you are requesting me please write "FOR LINDA" in front of your post.
