The controller for Tender Bird Poultry, Inc. Estimates that the companys fixed overhead is \$150,000 per year. She also has determined that the variable overhead is approximately \$.15 per chicken raised and sold. Since the firm has a single product, overhead is applied on the basis of output units, chickens raised and sold.
Required:
1. Calculate the predetermined overhead rate under each of the following output predictions: 100,000 chickens, 200,000 chickens, and 300,000 chickens.
2. Does the predetermined overhead rate change in proportion to the change in predicted production? Why?

Budgeted amount of cost driver (or activity base)

150,000/100,000 = 1.5
150,000/200,000 = .75
150,000/300,000 = .50

That's a start but you still need to add the .15 per chicken, given that all those answers are per chicken.
