Total cost = \$373

Job selling price = \$757

Explanation:

Giving the following information:

Selle Appliance charges customers for labor on each job at a rate of \$89 per hour.

Direct labor hour = \$27

Overhead rate = \$14 per direct labor hour

A recent customer job consisted of \$45 in parts and materials and 8 hours of technician time.

1) Total cost = direct material + direct labor + allocated overhead

Total cost = 45 + 8*27 + 14*8 = \$373

2) Job selling price = direct labor hour required*89 + direct material used

Job selling price = 8*89 + 45 = \$757
