1.(TCO F) Willow Creek Corporation bases its predetermined overhead rate on the estimated labor hours for the upcoming year. At the beginning of the most recently completed year, the company estimated the labor hours for the upcoming year at 38,500 labor hours. The estimated variable manufacturing overhead was $7.37 per labor hour and the estimated total fixed manufacturing overhead was $601,328. The actual labor hours for the year turned out to be 41,721 labor hours.

Compute the company's predetermined overhead rate for the recently completed year.(Points : 25)

2.(TCO F) Matuseski Corporation is preparing its cash budget for October. The budgeted beginning cash balance is $17,000. Budgeted cash receipts total $187,000 and budgeted cash disbursements total $177,000. The desired ending cash balance is $40,000.

2.(TCO D) Lindon Company uses 4,500 units of Part X each year as a component in the assembly of one of its products. The company is presently producing Part X internally at a total cost of $69,000 as follows:
Direct materials $16,000
Direct labor 18,000
Variable manufacturing overhead 10,000
Fixed manufacturing overhead 25,000
Total costs $69,000
An outside supplier has offered to provide Part X at a price of $11 per unit. If Lindon stops producing the part internally, one third of the manufacturing overhead would be eliminated.

2.(TCO G) (Ignore income taxes in this problem.) Five years ago, the City of Paranoya spent $30,000 to purchase a computerized radar system called W.A.S.T.E. (Watching Aliens Sent To Earth). Recently, a sales rep from W.A.S.T.E. Radar Company told the city manager about a new and improved radar system that can be purchased for $50,000. The rep also told the manager that the company would give the city $10,000 in trade on the old system. The new system will last 10 years. The old system will also last that long but only if a $4,000 upgrade is done in 5 years. The manager assembled the following information to use in the decision regarding which system is more desirable:
Old System New System
Cost of radar system $30,000 $50,000
Current salvage value $10,000 -
Salvage value in 10 years $5,000 $8,000
Annual operating costs $34,000 $29,000
Upgrade required in 5 years $4,000 -
Discount rate 14% 14%

(a) What is the City of Paranoya's net present value for the decision described above? Use the total cost approach.
