*Overhead rates are based on a denominator activity level of 30,000 machine-hours. During 2015, Comfort Company produced and sold 12,000 office chairs. Management believes that the denominator level of activity represents 75% of theoretical capacity and 80% of practical capacity.
Required:
1. Calculate the total overhead costs at the following levels of activity: theoretical, practical, denominator, and actual (2015).
2. Assuming Comfort Company can sell all of the chairs it can produce for \$100 per unit, calculate the opportunity loss of producing 12,000 chairs in 2015 compared to the following capacity utilization alternatives: theoretical, practical, and denominator.
