Explanation:

Giving the following information:

Department:

Consumer = 700

Commercia = 300

To calculate the estimated manufacturing overhead rate we need to use the following formula:

Estimated manufacturing overhead rate = total estimated overhead costs for the period / total amount of allocation base

Estimated manufacturing overhead rate = 396,000/1,000 = \$396 per loan processed.
