2,034Rather than simply give you the answer, hopefully I can guide you there for yourself.

Task 1.5 asks So go back to your answer to 1.4

Next look at the 3 bullet points of data.

on the basis of budgeted direct labour hoursI hope this sets you in the right direction. All the information is there, some of your own, some in the additional data for the task.

67thank you so how i calculated it was

Manufact. Overheads / budget Hours =

12000 £ / 20000 h = 0.60 £

so to get the answer 1.6 Manufactor Dep. Overheards

i divided 0.60 £ by the hours worked 12000 h gives me 7200 £

so my Doll cost is 3.455555 = 3.41 £

is that right ??? im so confused

many thanks in advance

2,034I'm not going to be in college until next Tuesday, so unless you can either point me in the direction of the question or type it up I won't be able to help at the moment.
