Lets see if i can answer it. Do you have the answers to check?
First you need to calculate the OAR, which is 5.5mil/275000= £20
a) Cost driver per m.r is 3.5million/875=4000
Cost driver per setup is 2million/250=8000
Total material handling cost, Alpha  £700,000.00 and Delta  £2,800,000.00 which adds upto 3.5mil
Totalprod setup cost, Alpha  £400,000.00 and £1,600,000.00 which adds upto 2mil
b) Budgeted labour hours = 275000 (2x87500+1x100000)
Total Over head Absorbed, Alpha  £3,500,000.00 (20x2x87500) and Delta  £2,000,000.00
c) ABC, Alpha  £49 & Delta  £69
Absorption costing, Alpha  £76 & Delta  £45
Hope thats right.... haha0 
Hi Mergen
Many Thanks that's the right answers.
b) Alpha has £40 and Delta £20 overheads per unit, how do they come to this.
c) How do you come to the answer.
Many Thanks

b) Alpha  £40 = 3.5mil/87500. Delta  £20 = 2mil/100000
c) ABC Alpha 1,100,000.00/87500=13 then plus 6+30 = 49
Absorption costing Alpha 6+30+40(3.5mil/87500)=76. Absorption includes fixed costs.0 
Many Thanks for your help with this subject.0

You are welcome0

hello, can you please explain how do you know that Alpha is 3.5mil and Delta is 2,0mil when calculating the overheads per unit? i know this is probably silly question and very obvious but would really appreciate help.
thank you0
