and, should I use Plant at cost as a base to allocate Plant depreciation and Plant insurance?

(b). Use this information to calculate a production overhead absorption rate for Machining
department and for Assembly department based on machine hours and labor hours
respectively. Round off to nearest dollars for the above table.

My questions:

How to calculate the production overhead absorption rate?

Is it

Production overhead absorption rate for Machining department:

71,327/27,200 = $2.62/machine hour

Production overhead absorption rate for Assembly department:

50,756/18,000= $2.82/direct labour hour
