Rather than simply give you the answer, hopefully I can guide you there for yourself.
Use the data from task 1.4 to calculate the budgeted fixed overhead absorption rate for the manufacturing department for November
• What was the total budgeted fixed overhead for the manufacturing department?

Next look at the 3 bullet points of data.
1. One is for budgeted direct labour hours, one actual direct labour hours, the third the material cost.
2. Which of these is useful to try to find the BUDGETED fixed overhead absorption rate?
3. Then divide your value from task 1.4 by your chosen amount to produce, the BUDGETED fixed overhead absorption rate on the basis of budgeted direct labour hours

I 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.

hello

thank 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

I'm sorry
I'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.
