# Basic Flows, Equivalent Units Thayn Company produces an arthritis medication that passes through two departments: mixing and tableting. Thayn uses the weighted average method. Data for February for mixing are as follows: BWIP was zero; EWIP had 36,000 units, 50% complete: and 420,000 units were started. Tableting’s data for February are as follows: BWIP was 24,000 units, 20% complete; and 12,000 units were in EWIP, 40% complete. Required: 1. For mixing, calculate the (a) number of units transferred to tableting and (b) equivalent units of production. 2. For tableting, calculate the number of units transferred out to Finished Goods. 3. CONCEPTUAL CONNECTION Suppose that the units in the mixing department are measured in ounces, while the units in tableting are measured in bottles of 100 tablets, with a total weight of eight ounces (excluding the bottle). Decide how you would treat units that are measured differently and then repeat Requirement 2 using this approach.
