Check Figure 9.41 c. Joint cost allocated to Product X for either option = \$100,000

Product X Y Z Total
Quantity, liters 1,000,000 500,000 100,000 1,600,000
Sales price at splitoff \$0.09 \$0.05
No further processing - -
Further processing \$20,000 \$1,500
Sales price after further processing \$0.10 \$0.02
Joint processing cost \$160,000
Alternative 1: I thought that one of the alternative is the sales of X & Y at splitoff but not Z since it has no value at the splitoff.
Sell X & Y at splitoff X Y Z Total
Sales value \$90,000 \$25,000 \$- \$115,000
Further processing cost - - - \$-
NRV \$90,000 \$25,000 \$- \$115,000

Joint cost allocations X Y Z Total
Quantities 1,000,000 500,000 100,000 1,600,000
