Hi and welcome to Just Answer! I'm happy to help answer your Finance questions. Feel free to interject at any time if you need clarification.

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
