method?

What considerations should be made when choosing the allocation base (Hint: machines vs.
people)?
4-7
How is overhead applied to jobs? (i.e. what is the formula?)
4-8

You will have a problem where you must calculate the predetermined overhead rate and use
that rate to determine the amount of overapplied or underapplied overhead for the period.
Problem will be similar to #2 of your Ch 4 homework (Exercise 4-8).
