    Instructions are listed below.

    Explanation:

    Giving the following information:

    The estimated overhead will be $50,000, consisting of 5,000 hours of direct labor.

    The cost to make Job 0325 is $70 in aluminum and two hours of labor at $20 per hour.

    During the month, York incurs $50 in indirect material cost, $150 in administrative labor, $300 in utilities, and $250 in depreciation expense.

    First, we need to calculate the estimated overhead using the following formula:

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

    Estimated manufacturing overhead rate = 50,000/5,000 = $10 per direct labor hour.

    Now, we can allocate overhead to Job 0325:

    Allocated MOH = Estimated manufacturing overhead rate * Actual amount of allocation base

    Allocated MOH = $10*2 = $20

    Total job cost = 70 + 20 + 2*20 = $130

    Finally, we determine the total overhead incurred in the period:

    Overhead = indirect material + utilities + depreciation = 50 + 300 + 250 = $600
