    Predetermined rate = $24.178

    Explanation:

    Company's predetermined rate for overhead = Variable + Fixed

    Variable provided = $3 per hour

    Fixed = $593,000/28,000 hours = $21.1786

    Now for actual output fixed expenses will remain fixed = $593,000

    Variable = $733,264 - $593,000 = $140,264

    Variable overhead rate per hour = $140,264/28,500 = $4.9215

    thus predetermined rate = ($3 X 28,000) + $593,000

    = $84,000 + $593,000 = $677,000/28,000 hours (predetermined)

    = $24.178

    Actual = $733,264/28,500 = $25.728

    Final Answer

    Predetermined rate = $24.178
