To calculate the per unit overhead costs under ABC, the costs assigned to each product are divided  by the number of units produced. In this case, the unit cost for a hollow center ball is \$0.52 and the  unit cost for a solid center ball is \$0.44.  Under the traditional method of allocating overhead based on direct labor dollars, the total costs for  all balls would be divided by total direct labor dollars for all balls to determine the per unit cost.  Estimated direct labor costs for the year are \$1,512,000, of which \$378,000 is for hollow center balls  and \$1,134,000 is for solid center balls. The per unit direct labor costs are \$0.38 for hollow center

• 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.
