Explanation:

Giving the following information:

Estimated machine-hours = 25,000

At standard, each unit of finished product requires 3 machine-hours. Units of product completed 8,000 units

To allocate overhead, we need to use the standard number of machine-hours that would take to produce 8,000 units.

First, we need to determine the estimated overhead rate:

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

Estimated manufacturing overhead rate = 225,000/25,000 = &9 per machine hour
