Question

Hazlett, Inc., operates at capacity and makes plastic combs and hairbrushes. Although the combs and brushes are a matching set, they are sold individually and so the sales mix is not 1: 1. Hazlett’s management is planning its annual budget for fiscal year 2015. Here is information for 2015:


Hazlett accounts for direct materials using a FIFO cost flow.


Hazlett uses a FIFO cost flow assumption for finished goods inventory.
Combs are manufactured in batches of 200, and brushes are manufactured in batches of 100. It takes 20 minutes to set up for a batch of combs and 1 hour to set up for a batch of brushes.
Hazlett uses activity- based costing and has classified all overhead costs as shown in the following table. Budgeted fixed overhead costs vary with capacity. Hazlett operates at capacity so budgeted fixed overhead cost per unit equals the budgeted fixed overhead costs divided by the budgeted quantities of the cost allocation base.


Delivery trucks transport units sold in delivery sizes of 1,000 combs or 1,000 brushes. Do the following for the year 2015:
