    Problem 2:
    Mike's Meats incurs costs of $4,000 while processing raw chicken meat into three products: breasts, wings, and thighs. The meat is then sold to local grocery stores based on the following.
    Sales Price per lb. Quantity produced (lbs)
    Breast $2.00 3,000
    Wings $0.50 1,000
    Thighs $1.00 2,000
    Required: (Calculate relative quantity to three decimal points.)
    1. Determine the cost and gross profit percentage for each type of chicken using the physical units method of joint cost allocation.
    2. Repeat part (a) using the sales-value-at-split-off method of joint cost allocation.
    3. The company has an opportunity to sell wings to local restaurants for $1.00 per pound but additional packaging is required, which will cost $300 per 1,000 lb. Assuming the physical unit method is used to allocate joint costs, should the offer be accepted?
