1. Determine operating income for 20X7, assuming the firm uses the variable-costing approach to
product costing. (Do not prepare a statement.)
2. Assume that there is no January 1, 20X7, inventory; no variances are allocated to inventory; and
the firm uses a "full absorption" approach to product costing. Compute (a) the cost assigned to
December 31, 20X7, inventory; and (b) operating income for the year ended December 31, 20X7.
(Do not prepare a statement.)
This solution determines the operating income using the variable-costing approach to product costing. This solution also computes the cost assigned to the inventory and operating income using the "full absorption" approach to product costing.
