Wilkins Inc. has two types of handbags: standard and custom. The controller has decided to use a plantwide overhead rate based on direct labor costs. The president has heard of activity-based costing and wants to see how the results would differ if this system were used. Two activity cost pools were developed: machining and machine setup. Presented below is information related to the company’s operations.

Standard              Custom

Direct labor cost        45,600.                115,000

Machine Hours          1,490                   1,470

Setup hours                110                        410

Total estimated overhead costs are \$298,500. Overhead cost allocated to the machining activity cost pool is \$195,800, and \$102,700 is allocated to the machine setup activity cost pool.

**Compute the overhead rate using the traditional (plantwide) approach. (Round answers to 2 decimal places, e.g. 12.25%.)
