Required:

Using the FIFO method:

 Equivalent Units of Production for Direct materials (Do not enter commas in answer for example 5,000 should be entered as 5000) Equivalent Units of Production for Conversion Costs (Do not enter commas in answer for example 5,000 should be entered as 5000) Cost per Equivalent Unit – Direct Materials \$ (Round to 2 decimal places) Cost per Equivalent Unit – Conversion Costs \$ (Round to 2 decimal places) Total value of Ending Work in Process \$.00 (Round to the nearest whole dollar and do not enter dollar signs or commas in answer for example \$5,000 should be entered as 5000) Total value of units transferred out \$.00 (Round to the nearest whole dollar and do not enter dollar signs or commas in answer for example \$5,000 should be entered as 5000)

Using the FIFO method:

 Equivalent Units of Production for Direct materials (900*60%+15100+900*50%) = 16090 Equivalent Units of Production for Conversion Costs (900*80%+15100+900*70%) = 16450 Cost per Equivalent Unit – Direct Materials 32180/16090 = 2 Cost per Equivalent Unit – Conversion Costs 416512/16450 = 25.32 Total value of Ending Work in Process (15640*2+15820*25.32+530+2108) = 434480 Total value of units transferred out (450*2+630*25.32) = 16852
