Chapter 4 Exercise 7
The Towson Manufacturing Corporation applies overhead on the basis of machine hours. The following divisional information is presented for your review: |Division A |Division B | |Actual machine hours |22,500 |? | |Estimated machine hours |20,000 |? | |Overhead application rate |\$4.50 |\$5.00 | |Actual overhead |\$110,000 |? | |Estimated overhead |? |\$90,000 | |Applied overhead |? |\$86,000 | |Over- (under-) applied overhead

Division A:

\$90,000.00

\$101,250.00

Under Applied Overhead = \$101,250 - \$110,000

-\$8,750.00 |? |\$6,500 | |Find the unknowns for each of the divisions.

Chapter 4 Problem 2
2. Computations using a job order system
General Corporation employs a job order cost system. On May 1 the following balances were extracted from the general ledger;

Work in process \$ 35,200
Finished goods 86,900
Cost of goods sold 128,700

Work in Process consisted of two jobs, no. 101 (\$20,400) and no. 103 (\$14,800). During May, direct materials requisitioned from the storeroom amounted to \$96,500, and direct labor incurred totaled \$114,500. These figures are subdivided as follows:

Direct Materials

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |Job no. 115 was the only job in process at the end of the month. Job no. 101 and three "other" jobs were sold during May at a profit of 20% of cost. The "other" jobs contained material and labor charges of \$21,000 and \$17,400, respectively.

General applies overhead daily at the rate of 150% of direct labor cost as labor summaries are posted to job orders. The firm's fiscal year ends on May 31.

Instructions:
Compute the total overhead applied to production during May. 114,500*.20= \$22,900 Compute the cost of the ending work in process inventory. 128,700-86,900=\$41,800 Compute the cost of jobs completed during May. 114,500+96,500=\$211,000 Compute the cost of goods sold for the year ended May 31. 128,700+96,500=\$225,200
