    Sales-Value-at-Split-off Method

    Alomar Company manufactures four products from a joint production process: barlon, selene, plicene, and corsol. The joint costs for one batch are as follows:

    DIRECT MATERIALS $67,900
    DIRECT LABOR 34,000
    OVERHEAD 25,500

    At the split-off point, a batch yields 1,400 barlon, 2,600 selene, 2,500 plicene, and 3,500 corsol. All products are sold at the split-off point: barlon sells for $15 per unit, selene sells for $20 per unit, plicene sells for $26 per unit, and corsol sells for $35 per unit.

    Required:

    Allocate the joint costs using the sales-value-at-split-off method. If required, round allocation rates to four decimal places and round the final allocations to the nearest dollar.

    Allocated Joint Cost

    Barlon $
    Selene
    Plicene
    Corsol
    Total $

    (Note: The total of the allocated cost does not equal $127,400 due to rounding error.)
