In addition to the fragmentary data still legible on the performance report, your neighbor happened to remember the following facts.

  • Planned production of Conundrum’s sole product was 500 units more than the actual production.
  • All of the direct material purchased in January was used in production.
  • There were no beginning or ending inventories.
  • Variable and fixed overhead are applied on the basis of direct-labor hours. The fixed-overhead rate is $4.00 per hour.
