    Zhao Manufacturing Company has two departments, machining and finishing. For a given period the following costs were incurred by the company as a whole: direct material, $200,000; direct labor, $75,000; and indirect production, $80,000. The grand total was $355,000.

    The machining department incurred 70% of the direct material costs, but only 33 1/3% of the direct labor costs. As in commonplace, indirect production costs incurred by each department were allocated to products in proportion to the direct-labor costs of products within the departments. Three products were produced.

    Product Direct Material Direct Labor
    Sigma 40% 30%
    Chi 30% 30%
    Delta 30% 40%
    Total for the machining department 100% 100%

    Sigma 33.33% 40%
    Chi 33.33% 40%
    Delta 33.33% 20%
    Total for the finishing department 100% 100%
    The indirect production costs incurred by the machining and finishing departments and allocated to all
    products therein amounted to machining, $38,000 and finishing, $42,000.
    1. Compute the total costs incurred by the machining department and added by the finishing department.
    2. Compute the total costs of each product that would be show as finished-goods inventory if all the products were transferred to finished stock on completion. (There were no beginning inventories).
