= \$285,600/10,200 = \$28 per hour B: Applied overhead = Predetermined Overhead Rate * Actual Direct Labor Hours = \$28 * 9,930 = \$278,040 C: Actual overhead = \$285,000 Applied overhead = \$278,040 Overhead is Under-Applied by \$6,960 D: Total cost = Prime cost + Applied Overhead = \$1,050,000 + \$278,040 = \$1,328,040 Units produced = 150,000 Cost per unit = \$1,328,040 ÷ 150,000 = \$8.8536
