not multiple choice



im not sure about my answer plz see below


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
