Estimated total machine-hours (MHs) 6,000 4,000 10,000
Estimated total fixed manufacturing overhead cost $ 24,000 $ 10,400 $ 34,400
Estimated variable manufacturing overhead cost per MH $ 1.00 $ 2.00

During the period, the company started and completed two jobs--Job C and Job L. Data concerning those two jobs follow:

Job C Job L
Direct materials $ 16,400 $ 9,700
