two types of handbags: standard and custom. The controller has decided to use a
plant wide overhead rate based on direct labor costs. The president has heard

setup. Presented below is information related to the company’s operations.

the machining activity cost pool is $199,400, and $95,700 is allocated to
the machine setup activity cost pool.
