Refer to the information for Healthy Pet Company above.
Ladan Suriman, controller for Healthy Pet Company, has been instructed to develop a flexible budget for overhead costs. The company produces two types of dog food. BasicDiet is a standard mixture for healthy dogs. SpecialDiet is a reduced protein formulation for older dogs with health problems. The two dog foods use common raw materials in different pro-portions. The company expects to produce 100,000 bags of each product during the coming year. BasicDiet requires 0.30 direct labor hours per bag, and SpecialDiet requires 0.40 direct labor hours per bag. Ladan has developed the following fixed and variable costs for each of the four overhead items:
1. Calculate the total direct labor hours required for the production of 100,000 bags of Basic-Diet and 100,000 bags of SpecialDiet.
2. Prepare an overhead budget for the expected activity level (calculated in Requirement 1) for the coming year.
