Additional Computations:

Equivalent Production:

Labor and factory overhead = 35,000 + 4,000 / 4 = 36,000 units

Unit Costs:

Labor = $32,400 / 36,000 = $0.90 per unit

Factory overhead = $19,800 / 36,000 = 0.55 per unit

*Adjustment for lost units:

Method No.1: $140,400 / 39,000 = $3.60; $3.60 - $3.51 = $0.09 per unit

Method No.2: 1,000 units × $3.51 = $3,510; $3,510 / 39,000 = $0.09 per unit

Explanation:

Total and unit cost figures were derived by using procedures discussed for the cost of production report of the Testing Department. The work completed is transferred to the finished goods storeroom; thus, the title "Transferred to finished goods storeroom" is used in place of the title "Transferred to next department." Cost charged to the Terminal Department come from the payroll distribution and the department's expense analysis sheet. The journal entry transferring costs from the Testing Department follows:

Work in process - Terminal Department                            140,000
           Work in process - Testing Department                            140,000

The entry to transfer finished units to the finished goods storeroom is presented below:

Finished Goods                                                           176,750
           Work in process - Terminal Department                          176,750
