    The predetermined manufacturing overhead rate per direct labor hour will be $32

    Explanation:

    The formula to compute the predetermined manufacturing overhead rate is shown below:

    = (Estimated manufacturing overhead) : (Estimated direct labor hours)

    where,

    Estimated manufacturing overhead = Wages of factory janitors + Utilities for factory + Rent on factory building

    = $39,900 + $17,000 + $13,900

    = $70,800

    And, the estimated direct labor hours is 2,200 machine hours

    Now put these values to the above formula

    So, the value would equal to

    = $70,800 : 2,200 machine hours

    = $32.18
