790,000
790,000
Work in process, ending:

Materials:
50,000 units × 60% complete
30,000

Labor and overhead:
50,000 units × 20% complete 10,000 10,000
Equivalent units of production

Overhead
Units in ending inventory
1,500
1,500
1,500
Percent completed
90%
40%
40%
Equivalent units of production
1,350
600
600

2. Cost of ending work in process inventory and units transferred out:

Materials
Labor
Overhead
Total

Ending work in process inventory:

Equivalent units of production
1,350
600
600

Cost per equivalent unit
\$24.00
\$7.00
\$14.00

Cost of ending work in process inventory
\$32,400
\$4,200
\$8,400
\$45,000

Units completed and transferred out:

Units transferred to the next department
18,000
18,000
18,000

Cost per equivalent unit
\$24.00
\$7.00
\$14.00

Cost of units completed and transferred out
\$432,000
\$126,000
\$252,000
\$810,000

3. Cost reconciliation:

Total cost to be accounted for
\$855,000

Costs accounted for as follows:

Cost of ending work in process inventory
\$ 45,000

Cost of units completed and transferred out 810,000

Total cost accounted for
\$855,000

Problem 4-13 (45 minutes)
Weighted-Average Method

1.
Equivalent Units of Production

Materials
Conversion

Transferred to next department*
380,000
380,000

Ending work in process:

Materials: 40,000 units x 75% complete 30,000

Conversion: 40,000 units x 25% complete

10,000

Equivalent units of production
410,000
390,000

*Units transferred to the next department = Units in beginning work in process + Units started into production − Units in ending work in process = 70,000 + 350,000 − 40,000 = 380,000
