# Relative Sales Value Method - Joint Costs

This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

Please help me with this problem as I am totally lost.

Product M and S are joint products. The joint production cost of the products is \$1500. That is, there are costs up to a certain point and we cannot divide the products before that point.
M has a market value of \$2000 at the split-off point. If M is further processed at an additional cost of \$900, its market value is \$3000.
Product S has a market value of \$3000 at the split-off point. If Product S is further processed at an additional cost of \$1000, its market value is \$4500.
Using the relative sales value method (Using the sales price at slit off), calculate the joint product cost that would be allocated to M and S.

Thank you,

Mike
