Under Absorption Costing, all costs are included. Under Variable costing, only variable costs are included.

 A) Direct materials \$35 * 5200 = 182000 B) Direct labor \$16.8 * 5200 = 87360 C) Fixed FOH \$5.6 * 5200 = 29120 D) Variable FOH \$4.9 * 5200 = 25480

Absorption Costing = A+B+C+D = 323,960

Variable Costing = A+B+D = 294,840
