Problem 6-11 (45 minutes) Weighted-Average Method 1 . Equivalent Units of Production Materia ls Conversio n Transferred to next department* ............... 395,00 0 395,000 Ending work in process: Materials: 55,000 units × 65% complete 35 ,750 Conversion: 55,000 units × 30% complete ............................................... 16,500 Equivalent units of production .................. 430 ,75 0 411,500 *Units transferred to the next department = Units in beginning work in process + Units started into production Units in ending work in process = 85,000 + 365,000 55,000 = 395,000 2 . Cost per Equivalent Unit Material s Conversio n Cost of beginning work in process ......... \$ 101,00 0 \$ 51,000 Cost added during the period ................ 462 ,000 213,000 Total cost (a) .......................................... \$563,00 0 \$264,000
Equivalent units of production (b) .......... 430,750 411,500 Cost per equivalent unit, (a) ÷ (b) ......... \$1.31 \$0.64* *rounded
