  1. 1. Compute the total cost per equivalent unit for the month. 18.20 + 23.25 = 41.45

    2. Compute the equivalent units of material and of conversion costs in the ending inventory.

    Equivalent units in ending inventory = units in ending inventory x % completed

    Material = 300 * 80% = 240
    Conversion = 300 * 40% = 120

    Equivalent units in beginning inventory = units in ending inventory x % completed
    Material = 400 * 70% = 280
    Conversion = 400 * 30% = 120

    2. Determine the number of units started and completed during the month.

    units started into production – units in ending WIP
    4400 – 400 = 4000
    3. Determine the costs of ending inventory and units transferred out.

    Material Conversion
    Ending WIP inventory:
    Equivalent units of production 240 120
    Cost per equivalent unit 18.2 23.25
    Cost of ending WIP inventory 4,368 390

    Units transferred out:
    Cost from beginning WIP inventory 7,886 4,897 12,783
    Cost to complete the beginning WIP inventory
    Equivalent units of production 280 120
    Cost per equivalent unit 18.2 23.25
    Cost to complete the units beginning WIP inventory 5,096 2,790 7,886

    Cost of units started & completed during the period
    Units started & completed this period 4,000 4,000
    Cost per equivalent unit 18.2 23.25
    Cost of units started & completed during the period 72,800 93,000 165,800

    Total cost of units transferred out $186,469
