    Process Cost: Weighted Average Method

    Agua-Paint, Inc. produces an environmentally correct paint that goes through department A and department B. Department A's data on units and costs for the last month are presented below (look also in the attachment).
    Percent completed
    Units Materials Conversion
    Beginning work in process 20,000 100% 80%
    Units started 180,000
    Units transferred out 190,000 100% 10%%
    Ending work in process 10,000 0% 40%

    Beginning work in process $20,000 $8,000
    Current period cost 580,000 380,000

    Required:
    1. Compute equivalent unit materials and conversion.
    2. Compute unit cost per equivalent unit materials and conversion.
    3. Compute costs of units transferred out.
    4. Determine ending balance of work in process for materials and conversion cost.
