Expert Solution

(a)

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.

Cost per unit

Total unit cost is the cost incurred by the company to produce one unit of product. The unit cost is calculated by dividing the units produced with the total cost.

To Determine: The number of whole units to be accounted for and units to be assigned costs.

### Explanation of Solution

Calculate the number of whole units to be accounted for as shown below:

Total accounted for = Units transferred out +Ending work in process inventory=8,100units +1,200units=9,300units

Total accounted for is calculated by adding units transferred out and ending work in process inventory. Therefore, total accounted for 9,300 units
