Explanation

(A) Calculation of material requisition at May 31 :

The material requisition will be the cost of direct material incurred during the year. So, the material requisition is $32,100. (B) Calculation of balance of work in process at May 1 : The work in process at the beginning is given which is$5,500($1,500+$4,000)

(C) Calculation of balance of work in process of material at May 31 :

The material work in process balance will be the cost of direct material incurred during the year for the jobs not completed i.e. job no. 523 and 526 in which the material is $5,500($3,500+$2,000).

The factory overhead balance applied in total will be the factory overhead incurred during the year i.e. 120% of total direct labor which will amount to$115,200($96,000×120%). (F) Calculation of work in process of completed jobs at May 31 :  Job no. Quantity(a) Units sold Unsold quantity(g) Direct Material(b) Direct Labor(c) Factory overhead(d){120%×(c)} Total cost(e)(b)+(c)+(d) Unit cost(f){ea} Cost of goods sold(h){(f)×(g)} 521 100 80 20$5,000 $15,000$18,000 $39,500$395 $7,900 522 200 160 40$8,500 $26,000$31,200 $69,700$348
