QUESTION 4
Order Up, Inc., provides order fulfillment services for dot.com merchants. The company
maintains warehouses that stock items carried by its dot.com clients. When a client receives an

packs it, and ships it to the customer. The company uses a predetermined variable overhead rate
based on direct labor-hours.

In the most recent month, 110,000 items were shipped to customers using 5,400 direct laborhours. The company incurred a total of $18,630 in variable overhead costs.

for one item and the variable overhead rate is $3.50 per direct labor-hour.
