Sequential Method of Support Department Cost AllocationStevenson Company is divided into two operating divisions: Battery and Small Motors. Assume thatStevenson uses the sequential method to allocate support department costs to the operating divisions.Power costs are allocated on the basis of the number of machine hours and general factory costs onthe basis of square footage. General Factory is allocated first in the sequential method for thecompany. Support department cost allocations are based on the following data:SupportOperating DivisionsDepartmentsGeneralSmallPowerFactoryBatteryMotors\$160,000\$430,000\$163,000\$84,600Machine hours2,0002,0007,0001,500Square footage1,0001,5005,00015,00018,00060,000Overhead costsDirect labor hoursRequired:1.
