Abbey Products Company is studying the results of applying factory overhead to production. The following data have been used: estimated factory overhead, $60,000; estimated materials costs, $50,000; estimated direct labor costs, $60,000; estimated direct labor hours, 10,000; estimated machine hours, 20,000; work in process at the beginning of the month, none.

1. Compute the predetermined rate, based on the following:
a. Direct labor cost
b. Direct labor hours
