Production records show that there were 410 units in the beginning inventory, 30% complete, 1,490 units started, and 1,470 units transferred out. The beginning work in process had materials cost of \$2,140 and conversion costs of \$1,690. The units in ending inventory were 40% complete. Materials are entered at the beginning of the painting process.

Wilkins Inc. has two types of handbags: standard and custom. The controller has decided to use a plantwide overhead rate based on direct labor costs. The president has heard of activity-based costing and wants to see how the results would differ if this system were used. Two activity cost pools were developed: machining and machine setup. Presented below is information related to the company’s operations.

 Standard Custom Direct labor costs \$41,800 \$104,000 Machine hours 1,370 1,220 Setup hours 100 400

Total estimated overhead costs are \$298,200. Overhead cost allocated to the machining activity cost pool is \$198,300, and \$99,900 is allocated to the machine setup activity cost pool.
 (a)
Compute the overhead rate using the traditional (plantwide) approach. (Round answers to 2 decimal places, e.g. 12.25%.)

 Predetermined overhead rate % of direct labor cost
