Joint Cost Allocation—Weighted average method Gordon's Smoothie Stand makes three types of smoothies: blueberry lemon, orange swirl, and triple berry. Before all flavors are added, the smoothies go through a joint mixing process that costs a total of $43 per batch. One batch produces 21.75 cups of blueberry lemon smoothies, 29 cups of orange swirl smoothies, and 36.25 cups of triple berry smoothies. In addition, Gordon has studiously noted that the mixing process necessary for triple berry and blueberry lemon smoothies takes twice as long as it does for orange swirl smoothies. Allocate the joint costs of production to each product using the weighted average method. Round your answers to two decimal places.

  • Joint Cost Allocation—Net Realizable Value Method Lily’s Lemonade Stand makes three types of lemonade: pure, raspberry, and strawberry. The lemonade is produced through a joint mixing process that costs a total of $30 per batch. One batch produces 32 cups of pure lemonade, 21 cups of strawberry lemonade, and 21 cups of raspberry lemonade. After the split-off point, all three lemonades can be sold for $0.80 per cup, but strawberry and raspberry lemonade can be processed further by adding artificial coloring and flavoring and sold for $0.95 and $1.00 per cup, respectively. It is estimated that these additional processing costs are $0.75 and $1.80 per batch for strawberry and raspberry lemonade, respectively. Allocate the joint costs of production to each product using the net realizable value method. Joint Product Allocation Pure lemonade $ Strawberry lemonade   Raspberry lemonade   Totals $
