Why are you attempting a question for which you do not have an answer? You should be using a Revision Kit from one of the ACCA approved publishers (BPP or Kaplan) – they have answers and explanations.
The budgeted overheads are 74610 + 98328 = 172938
The budgeted machine hours are 1900
Therefore the predetermined absorption rate is 172938/1900 per hour.
I do suggest that you watch my free lectures on overheads. The lectures are a complete free course for Paper MA and cover everything needed to be able to pass the exam well.
