** 35% complete as to DM; 15% complete as to DL; 25% complete as to OH
Note: When answering the following questions, round your answers to two decimal places (i.e. round \$4.355 to \$4.36).

a. What is the cost of the beginning inventory transferred out in October?

b. What is the total cost transferred out in October?

c. What is the cost of ending inventory at the end of October?

d. What is the total cost to account for during October?

Units started and completed = 1570000-42600 = 1527400

a. Cost of beginning inventory transferred = \$458482 + 42600 x 20% x \$10.74 + 42600 x 55% x \$13.88 + 42600 x 30% x 70% = \$884141.20

b. Total Cost transferred out = \$884141.20 + 1527400 x (\$10.74+13.88+24.80) = \$76,368,249.20

c. Cost of ending inventory = 28400 x 35% x \$10.74 + 28400 x 15% x \$13.88 + 28400 x 25% x \$24.80 = \$341964.40

d. Total Cost to account for = \$76368249.20 + 341964.40 = \$76,710,213.60
