Becker Company developed the following data for the current year:
Beginning work in process inventory $ 60,000
Direct materials used 36,000
Actual overhead 72,000
Overhead applied 54,000
Cost of goods manufactured 66,000
Total manufacturing costs 180,000

18. Becker Company's direct labor cost for the year is
a. $18,000.
b. $90,000.
c. $54,000.
d. $72,000.

Total manufacturing cost = Direct Material + Direct Labor + Applied Overhead

180,000 = 36,000+Direct Labor + 54,000

Direct Labor = 90,000
We use the applied overhead since that is debited to the work in process account. The actual overhead is a debit in overhead account and the over under applied overhead is closed at the end of the period

19. Becker Company's ending work in process inventory is
a. $174,000.
b. $120,000.
c. $114,000.

Cost of goods Manufactured = Opening WIP + Total manufacturing cost - Ending WIP

66,000=60,000+180,000-Ending WIP

Ending WIP = 174,000
