I'm doing XYZ123, a factory job cost exercise

A factory job cost card number XYZ123 shows the following price cost:
Direct Materials - 55.5 tons of steel @ £286 per ton
Direct Wages - Depo A - 60 hrs @ £13 per hour
Depo B - 80 hrs @ £12 per hour

The budget for the year reveals the following:

Depo A £24,000 for 36,000 direct labour hrs
Depo B £40,000 for 50,000 direct labour hrs

Total budgeted direct labour hrs for the whole factory 90,000
Total budgeted expenditure £67,500

Required

A) Calculate the cost of job XYZ123
Estimate the percentage profit obtained if the price quoted to the customer was £17,995

What am i doing with the 90,000 exactly?

Any help would be appreciated thanks

I hope the attachment is helpful.

The 90,000 hours of direct labour shows the total hours to be worked, 36,000 will be in dept A, 50,000 will be in dept B and presumably there is a dept c where the remainder are worked.
Our product only uses dept A and dept B.
We find the fixed overhead absorption rate per direct labour hour by dividing total budgeted cost by the total budgeted labour hours, in this case:
£67,500
90,000 hours

This gives us a fixed overhead absorption rate of £0.75 per direct labour hour.

on the last bit is says what would the client be charged if the company set a 25% profit on cost. Am i right in thinking 25% is put on 17822 giving a charge to the customer of £22277.50???

Yes
You have correctly added 25% on to the cost.
I do not have any more of the question than that supplied here.
