Walts Whistles manufactures referee whistles. At the beginning

Resolved Question:

Walt’s Whistles manufactures referee whistles. At the beginning of March, Walt’s has no completed whistles in inventory. Walt’s expects to produce and sell 10,000 whistles in March.
Each whistle requires a standard quantity of 0.05 direct labor hours. Walt doesn’t plan to have any whistles left in inventory at the end of March.
The standard rate per direct labor hour is $12.00. How much does Walt’s plan to spend on direct labor in March?

Thanks for your question.

10,000 whistles x 0.05 direct labor hours per whistle = 500 direct labor hours
500 direct labor hours x $12 per hour = $6,000 to be spent on direct labor in March.

Hope this helps!
