Expert Solution

(a-1)

To determine

Process costs

It is a method of cost accounting, which is used where the production is continuous, and the product needs various processes to complete. This method is used to ascertain the cost of the product at each process or stage of production.

Equivalents units for production

The activity of a processing department in terms of fully completed units is known as equivalent units. It includes the completed units of direct materials and conversion cost of beginning work in process, units completed and transferred out, and ending work in process.

Production cost report

A production cost report is a comprehensive report prepared for each department separately at the end of a particular period, which represents the physical flow and cost flow of product for the concerned department.

To Determine: The equivalents units for production of direct materials and conversion costs for the month of August for Company MBC.

Explanation of Solution

Calculate the equivalents units for production of direct materials and conversion costs for the month of August for Company MBC as shown below:

Figure (1)

Working notes:

Calculate opening work in process inventory for conversion costs as shown below:

Opening work in process inventory for conversion costs) = 120%=80%

Calculate units started and completed in August as shown below:

Units started and completed in August = (Units received from material storeroom Ending work in process inventory)=14,300units
