\$168,000

1. The total cost assigned to the ending work in process inventory

Total cost assigned = Units completed for materials * Equivalent cost + Units completed for Labor and OH * Equivalent cost

Total cost assigned = 18800 * 2.95+ 18800 * 60% * 4.45

Total cost assigned = \$105656 Option D

2. conversion cost was assigned to the ending work in process inventory

Conversion Cost = Units completed for Labor and OH * Equivalent cost

Conversion Cost = 8000 * 80% * 3.20

Conversion Cost = \$20480 Option C

3. total cost of the units completed and transferred out of the department

Total Cost = Units Transferred out * (Material + Conversion cost)

Total Cost = 49000 * (1.2 + 4) = \$254800 Option A

4. Total cost to be accounted for = Cost transferred out + Ending WIP

Total cost to be accounted for = 149000 + 19000

Total cost to be accounted for = \$168000 Option D
