The weighted average method is used to account for the costs of production. After blending, the resulting product is sent to the molding department, where it is poured into molds and cooled.

WIP, August 31, had 50,000 pounds, 40% complete. c. Units completed and transferred out totaled 480,000 pounds. Costs added during the month were (all inputs are added uniformly): Required: 1. Prepare (a) a physical flow schedule and (b) an equivalent unit schedule. 2. Calculate the unit cost. ( Note : Round to three decimal places.) 3. Compute the cost of EWIP and the cost of goods transferred out. 4. Prepare a cost reconciliation. 5. Suppose that the materials added uniformly in blending are paraffin and pigment and that the manager of the company wants to know how much each of these materials costs per equivalent unit produced. The costs of the materials in BWIP are as follows: The costs of the materials added during the month are also given: Prepare an equivalent unit schedule with cost categories for each material. Calculate the cost per unit for each type of material.
