The answer booklet states that the answer is 3.17 for machine hours, 2.72 for labour hours and 5.07 for units but I just can’t seem to work out how to get those answers!! Every other section I’m fine with but just need to know how to work out the overhead costs so I can complete the quesion!!
Any help would be muchly appreciated as I have spent so long trying to work it out!!
Thank you

OAR you have calculated as £19, and this is correct, so just multiple by the priduction time to see how many were absorbed
19x10/60=3.16666, rounded up
Try the same method for the rest and you will see how easy it isAAT Level 2. 2018 Distinction
