Holby allocates production overhead using activity-based costing. It allocates delivery expense and sales commissions, which amount to $108,000 per quarter, to the two products equally.

Required

a. Compute the net profit for each product.

b. Assuming that the overhead allocation for Basco boards includes $24,000 of facility-level cost, would you advise Holby to eliminate these boards? (Hint. Consider the method used to allocate the delivery and selling expense.)
