ACCOUNTING

Exercise 8-13 Contrasting Traditional and ABC Product Costs [LO1, LO5] Model X100 sells for $120 per unit whereas Model X200 offers advanced features and sells for $500 per unit. Management expects to sell 50,000 units of Model X100 and 5,000 units of Model X200 next year. The direct material cost per unit is $50 for Model X100 and $220 for Model X200. The company's total manufacturing overhead for the year is expected to be $1,995,000. A unit of Model X100 requires 2 direct labor-hours and a unit of Model X200 requires 5 direct labor-hours. The direct labor wage rate is $20 per hour.

Requirement 1:

(a) Calculate the predetermined overhead rate. (Round your answer to 2 decimal places. Omit the "$" sign in your response.)

(b) Using this traditional approach, compute the product margins for X100 and X200. (Negative amounts should be indicated by a minus sign. Omit the "$" sign in your response.)

2.) Management is considering an activity-based costing system and would like to know what impact this would have on product costs. Preliminary analysis suggests that under activity-based costing, a total of $1,000,000 in manufacturing overhead cost would be assigned to Model X100 and a total of $600,000 would be assigned to Model X200. In addition, a total of $150,000 in nonmanufacturing overhead would be applied to Model X100 and a total of $350,000 would be applied to Model X200. Using the activity-based costing approach, compute the product margins for X100 and X200. (Negative amounts should be indicated by a minus sign. Omit the "$" sign in your response.)
