The price paid for each bottle was $0.048.Direct labour hours totalled 48,250, with a total cost of $622,425.Normal production volume for Goodsmell is 250,000 bottles per quarter. The standard overhead rates are computed by using normal volume. All overhead-costs are incurred uniformly throughout the year.Required:1.
