    Binding Company prints calendars. All direct materials are included at the inception of the printing process. There were 20,000 units in beginning inventory with a direct material cost of $1,000 and conversion cost of $3,760 in March. Direct materials totaled $26,000 for the month. Conversion costs were $20,000 Work-in-process records revealed that 160,000 calendars were started in March and that 144,000 were completed. Ending work-in-process units are complete with respect to direct materials costs and 40% complete with respect to conversion cost. The weighted-average method is used by Binding Company.
    Required:

    a. Determine the equivalent units of conversion.

    b. What is the conversion costs assigned to completed calendars?

    Solution Preview

    a. Determine the equivalent units of conversion.

    Equivalent units = Units completed X 100% + Units in ending inventory X percentage complete
    Total units to account for = units in beginning inventory + units started = 20,000+160,000=180,000
    Units ...

    Solution Summary
