Using the data presented below, determine which figures should be inserted in the blank spaces
Beginning Units in Process Units Started in production Units transferred to finished goods Ending units in process Equivalent units
a) 600 8,000 8,600 ?0 ?8,600
b) 900 6,500 ? 7,000 400- ½ completed ? 7,200
c)1500 ? 12,600 12,900 1,200- ¼ completed ? 13,200
d)?100 7,250 7,200 150- ½ completed ?7,275
e)? 0 8,400 8,200 200- ½ completed ? 8,300
f) 400 6,200 6,200 ?400 - ¼ completed 6,300

a) Total units = 600 + 8,000 = 8,600
Units transferred = 8,600
Ending in process = 0
Equivalent units = units transferred + equivalent units in process
= 8,600 + 0 = 8,600

b) Total units = 900 + 6,500 = 7,400
Units in ending in process = 400
Units transferred = 7,400-400 = 7,000
Equivalent units = 7,000 + 400 X 50% = 7,200

c) Total units are 12,900 + 1,200 = 14,100
Units in beginning in process = 1,500
Units started = ...

Baxter Company: Work in process: solve for missing amounts

Baxter Company developed the following data for the current year:

Beginning work in process inventory
$150,000

Direct materials used
90,000

Actual overhead
180,000

Overhead applied
135,000

Cost of goods manufactured
165,000

Total manufacturing costs
450,000

Baxter Company's direct labor cost for the year is ???
How do I manipulate and what formulas do I manipulate to get the missing Direct Labor total and Manufacturing Overhead total, of which Direct Materials (90,000) is given as well as the Total Manuf Costs total is given (450,000)
How do I get Predetermined overhead rate, and how and when do I use the Overhead Applied amount given??
