Question;1. Reno Corporation uses a predetermined overhead application rate of $.30 per direct labor hour. During the year it incurred $345,000 dollars of actual overhead, but it planned to incur $360,000 of overhead. The company applied $363,000 of overhead during the year. How many direct labor hours did the company plan to incur? 1,150,000 1,190,000 1,200,000 1,210,0002. For its most recent fiscal year, a firm reported that its contribution margin was equal to 40 percent of sales and that its net income amounted to 10 percent of sales. If its fixed costs for the year were $60,000, how much were sales? $150,000 $200,000 $600,000 can't be determined from the information given3. At its present level of operations, a small manufacturing firm has total variable costs equal to 75 percent of sales and total fixed costs equal to 15 percent of sales. Based on variable costing, if sales change by $1.00, income will change by _______. $0.25 $0.10 $0.75 can't be determined from the information given4. At the end of the last fiscal year, Roberts Company had the following account balances:Overapplied overhead $ 6,000Cost of Goods Sold $980,000Work in Process Inventory $ 38,000Finished Goods Inventory $ 82,000If the most common treatment of assigning overapplied overhead were used, the final balance in Cost of Goods Sold is _______. $974,000 $974,660 $985,340 $986,0005. Strong Products has no Work in Process or Finished Goods inventories at the close of business on December 31, 20X4. The balances of Strong Products? accounts as of December 31, 20X4, are as follows:Cost of goods sold--unadjusted $2,040,000Selling & administrative expenses 900,000Sales 3,600,000Manufacturing overhead control 700,000Manufacturing overhead applied 648,000Pretax income for 20X4 is ______. $608,000 $660,000 $712,000 undeterminable from the information given6. Long Company transferred 5,500 units to Finished Goods Inventory during September. On September 1, the company had 300 units on hand (40 percent complete as to both material and conversion costs).

Beginning Work in Process Inventory units were _______. 500 600 1,500 2,0008. Taylor Company uses a weighted average process costing system and started 30,000 units this month. Taylor had 12,000 units that were 20 percent complete as to conversion costs in beginning Work in Process Inventory and 3,000 units that were 40 percent complete as to conversion costs in ending Work in Process Inventory.

Actual fixed overhead is $33,300 (12,000 machine hours) and fixed overhead was estimated at $34,000 when the predetermined rate of $3.00 per machine hour was set.
