2. Prepare an income statement in good form.
3. Calculate prime cost and conversion cost.

Question 2
PhotoQuik is a film developing company. Customers mail their undeveloped rolls of film to the company and receive the completed photographs in return mail. The PhotoQik facility is built and staffed to handle the processing of $100,000 rolls of film per year. The lab facility cost $330,000 to build and expected to last 20 years. Processing equipment cost $592,000 and has a life expectancy of five years. Both facility and equipment are depreciated on a straight-line basis. PhotoQuik expects to spend $400,000 for chemicals, photo paper, envelopes, and other supplies (assuming $100,000 rolls of film are processed.) Last year, 96,000 rolls of film were processed.
1. Classify the resources associated with the film-processing activity into one of the following types: (1) committed resources and (2) flexible resources.
2. Calculate the total activity rate for the film-processing activity. Break the activity rate into fixed and variable components.
3. Compute the total activity availability, and break this into activity output and unused activity.
4. Calculate the total cost of resources supplied, and break this into the cost of activity used and cost of unused activity.
5. Explain the step-cost function.


Solution Summary

This provides examples of working with accounting problems to find types of resources, activity rate, activity availability, step-cost function, cost of goods, income statement, and cost per unit.
