    Because variable overheads vary with the number of hours worked, they also vary with the number of units made

    Look at the budget for the year
    Variable overhead is £20,000 for 100,000 units produced, so £0.20 per unit

    In May, the budget is for 8,000 units produced, so variable overhead is £0.20 x 8,00
    ie £1,600

    In May, 8,000 units take 1,200 hours (8,000 x 9mins/60)

    1,100 hours are paid at basic rate £14/hr 1,100 x 14 = £15,400
    100 hours overtime 100 x 14 x 150% = £ 2,100
    Total £17,500
