    Comprehensive Process Costing Problem Excel Assignment Number 3 (Chapter 6)


    Information Given:

    Well Products produces an antacid product that goes through two departments – Cooking and Bottling. The company has recently hired a new assistant accountant, who has prepared the following summary of production and costs for the Cooking Department for May using the weighted-average method.

    Cooking Department Costs:


    Work in process inventory, May 1: 70,000 quarts,

    materials 60% complete, labor and overhead 30%



    $ 61,000*

    Materials added during May


    Labor added during May


    Overhead applied during May


    Total department costs



    *Consists of materials, $39,000; labor $5,000; and overhead, $17,000 Cooking Department costs assigned to:

    Quarts completed and transferred to the Bottling Department: 400,000 quarts at ? per quart                                                         ? Work in process inventory, May 31: 50,000 quarts, Materials 70% complete, labor and overhead 40% Complete                                                   ?
