Overheads cost allocated to Mossman Job = \$449

Explanation:

We have been provided the cost of each activity and their respective drivers.

There are three activities

Supervision of Direct Labor = \$304,000 for 760,000 labor hours

Machine Maintenance = \$153,600 for 960,000 hours

Facility rent = \$165,000 for 110,000 square feet

Activities of Mossman Job and respective costs will be as follows:

Supervision of Direct Labor = \$304,000/760,000 X 260 labor hours = \$104

Machine Maintenance = \$153,600/960,000 X 1,500 = \$240

Facility Rent = \$165,000/110,000 X 70 = \$105

Net Overheads cost allocated to Mossman Job = \$104 + \$240 + \$105 = \$449
