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%

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
