(CMA, adapted) Nolton Products uses standard costing allocates manufacturing overhead (both variable and fixed)to products on the basis of standard direct manufacturing labor-hours (DLH). Nolton develops its manufacturing overhead rate from the current annual budget. The manufacturing overhead budget for 2009 is based on budgeted output of 720,000 units, requiring 3,600,000 DLH. The company is able to schedule production uniformly throughout the year.
A total of 66,000 output units requiring $315,000 DLH was produced during May 2009. Manufacturing overhead (MOH) costs incurred for May amounted to $375,000. The actual costs, compared with the -a budget and 1/12 of the annual budget, are as follows:

1. Total manufacturing overhead costs allocated
