 Production data: Pounds in the process, May 1; materials 100% complete, conversion 90% complete 62,000 Pounds started into production during May 270,000 Pounds completed and transferred out ? Pounds in the process, May 31 Materials 70% complete: conversion 30% complete 22,000 Cost data: Work in process inventory, May 1: Materials cost $55,100 Conversion cost$ 26,800 Cost added during May: Materials cost $286,570 Conversion cost$147,330

The company uses the weighted-average method

Required:

1. Compute the equivalent units of production.

Materials Conversion
Equivalent units of production

2. Compute the costs per equivalent unit for the month. (Round your answers to 2 decimal places.)

3. Determine the cost of ending work in process inventory and of the units transferred out to the next department. (Round your intermediate calculation to 2 decimal places.)

Total
Cost of ending work in process inventory
Cost of units completed and transferred out
