Bullock Furniture Company manufactures furniture. Bullock uses a job order cost system.

Balances on June 1 from the materials ledger are as follows:

Fabric $18,400
Polyester filling 5,500
Lumber 41,200
Glue 1,800

The materials purchased during June are summarized from the receiving reports as follows:

Fabric $90,200
Polyester filling 125,400
Lumber 247,100
Glue 8,600

Materials were requisitioned to individual jobs as follows:

Fabric Polyester Filling Lumber Glue Total
Job 101 $33,400 $42,100 $112,600 $188,100
Job 102 25,700 45,800 98,500 170,000
Job 103 23,700 31,100 54,800 109,600
Factory overhead-indirect materials $4,300 4,300
Total $82,800 $119,000 $265,900 $4,300 $472,000
