    Question 3:

    Caspion Corporation makes and sells a product called a Miniwarp. One Miniwarp requires 2.5 kilograms of the raw material Jurislon. Budgeted production of Miniwarps for the next five months is as follows:

    August 30,600 units
    September 18,800 units
    October 31,800 units
    November 26,500 units
    December 29,000 units

    The company wants to maintain monthly ending inventories of Jurislon equal to 17% of the following month's production needs. On July 31, this requirement was not met since only 10,400 kilograms of Jurislon were on hand. The cost of Jurislon is $19 per kilogram. The company wants to prepare a Direct Materials Purchase Budget for the next five months.

    The total cost of Jurislon to be purchased in August is:

    $1,438,310

    $1,407,710

    $1,415,700

    $1,484,210
