4–8 1. Labor cost is assigned to the activities using direct tracing and a resource driver (percentage of time) : Supervising employees $64,600 (direct tracing) Processing transactions$84,000 (0.40 × $210,000) Issuing statements $63,000 (0.30 × $210,000) Answering questions $63,000 (0.30 × $210,000) Computer, desk, and printer resources are divided evenly among the labor types and then assigned to activities using direct tracing and a resource driver (percentage of computer time) : Supervising employees* $4,900 (direct tracing) Processing transactions$24,010(0.70 × $34,300) Issuing statements $6,860(0.20 × $34,300) Answering questions $3,430(0.10 × $34,300) Note: One-eighth of the cost is assigned by even division to the supervisor [($32,000 + $7,200)/8 = $4,900]. The residual ($39,200 – $4,900 = $34,300) is assigned to the clerical group and then traced to the activities in proportion to hours of computer usage. Telephone cost is assigned to two activities: Supervising employees** $500 (direct tracing) Answering questions $3,500(direct tracing) ATM cost is computed using transactions as the resource driver: Providing ATM services $250,000 (0.20 × $1,250,000) Thus, adding the costs assigned, we obtain the following activity costs: Supervising employees $70,000($64,600 + $4,900 + $500) Processing transactions$108,010($84,000 + $24,010) Issuing statements $69,860($63,000 + $6,860) Answering questions $69,930($63,000 + $3,430 + $3,500) Providing ATM services $250,000 * ($32,000 + $7,200)/8 = $4,900 × 100%) ** ($4,000/8) = $500 per telephone × 100%
