Lennox Industries manufactures two products: A and B. A review

Lennox Industries manufactures two products: A and B. A review of the company's accounting records revealed the following per-unit costs and production volumes:
Production volume (units) Direct material Direct labor: 5,000 $ 60 2,500 $ 40 2 hours at $12 24 3 hours at $12 36 Manufa

Manufacturing overhead is currently computed by spreading overhead of $1,860,000 over 20,000 direct labor hours. Management is considering a shift to activity-based costing in an effort to improve the firm's accounting procedures, and the following data are available:

Lennox determines selling prices by adding 40% to a product's total cost.

b. Compute the per-unit overhead cost of product B if the company switches to activity-based costing.
c. Compute B's total per-unit cost and selling price under activity-based costing

e. Will the cost and selling price of product A likely increase or decrease if Lennox changes to activity-based costing? Why?
