Prepare an income statement according to the variable costing concept. Round all final answers to whole dollars. Weatherford Company Variable Costing Income Statement For the Month Ended November 30 \$ Variable cost of goods sold: \$ \$ \$ Fixed costs: \$ \$

(i) Selling and administrative expenses = \$9,410

Fixed selling and administrative expenses = \$4,610

Hence, variable selling and administrative expenses = Selling and administrative expenses - Fixed selling and administrative expenses

= 9,410 - 4,610

= \$4,800

(ii) Cost of goods manufactured = \$43,400

Fixed manufacturing costs = \$10,416

Hence, variable Cost of goods manufactured = Cost of goods manufactured - Fixed manufacturing costs

= 43,400 - 10,416

= \$32,984

Hence, inventory, November 30 (as per variable costing) = 32,984 x 400/3,100

= \$4,256

Hence, variable cost of goods sold = variable Cost of goods manufactured - inventory, November 30 (as per variable costing)

= 32,984 - 4,256

= \$28,728
