    Hi Anthony, I'm looking at the book. What question is it exactly that you want help on. Q5.6 is asking about the partners OAR, whilst working 35 Hrs and 37 hrs. Whilst the questions about the departments appear on other questions.

    Dont have the book at hand, but would suggest that the two methods are:
    1) total production overhead figure divided by machine hours = OH abs rate per machine hr.
    2) total production overhead figure divided by (TOTAL LABOUR HOURS - no. employees x 35hrs) = OH abs rate per direct labour hr.
