Kimm Company has gathered the following information about its product.

Direct materials: Each unit of product contains 3.10 pounds of materials. The average waste and spoilage per unit produced under normal conditions is 0.50 pounds. Materials cost \$3 per pound, but Kimm always takes the 4.94% cash discount all of its suppliers offer. Freight costs average \$0.40 per pound.

Direct labor. Each unit requires 1.40 hours of labor. Setup, cleanup, and downtime average 0.23 hours per unit. The average hourly pay rate of Kimm s employees is \$10.40. Payroll taxes and fringe benefits are an additional \$3.30 per hour.

Manufacturing overhead. Overhead is applied at a rate of \$5.30 per direct labor hour.

Costello Corporation manufactures a single product. The standard cost per unit of product is shown below.

 Direct materials 3 pound plastic at \$6.78 per pound \$ 20.34 Direct labor 1.00 hours at \$11.00 per hour 11.00 Variable manufacturing overhead 5.50 Fixed manufacturing overhead 6.50 Total standard cost per unit \$43.34

The predetermined manufacturing overhead rate is \$12 per direct labor hour (\$12.00 1.00). It was computed from a master manufacturing overhead budget based on normal production of 5,900 direct labor hours (5,900 units) for the month. The master budget showed total variable costs of \$32,450 (\$5.50 per hour) and total fixed overhead costs of \$38,350 (\$6.50 per hour). Actual costs for October in producing 4,200 units were as follows.

 Direct materials (12,740 pounds) \$ 89,307 Direct labor (4,030 hours) 45,297 Variable overhead 35,429 Fixed overhead 16,971 Total manufacturing costs \$187,004

The purchasing department buys the quantities of raw materials that are expected to be used in production each month. Raw materials inventories, therefore, can be ignored.
