Absorption costing unit product cost = \$270 per unit

Explanation:

Absorption costing values unit produced using the full cost per unit.

It categories cost as production and non-production cost

Full cost per unit = Direct labour cost + direct material cost + Variable production overhead + fixed production overhead

Fixed prod overhead per unit = Total fixed production overhead/Number of units

= \$148,000/3,700 units=\$40 per unit

Full cost per unit = 132 + 93 + 5 + 40 = \$270 per unit

Absorption costing unit = \$270 per unit
