2.) Burien allocates building depreciation, maintenance, and utilities on the basis of square footage. Office expenses are allocated on the basis of sales.
Management is considering an expansion to a three-department operation. The proposed Department C would generate $120,000 in additional sales and have a 17.5% contribution to overhead.

Increases in indirect expenses would include: maintenance, $500; utilities, $3,800; and office expenses, $1,200.
