compute both the direct labor cost and the direct materials cost per equivalent unit 648438

Eden Company uses process costing to account for its production costs. Direct labor is added evenly throughout the process. Direct materials are added at the beginning of the process. During April, the production department transferred 40,000 units of product to finished goods. Beginning goods in process had $116,000 of direct materials and $172,800 of direct labor cost. At the end of April, the goods in process inventory consists of 4,000 units that are 25% complete with respect to labor. The direct materials cost added in April is $1,424,000, and direct labor cost added is $3,960,000.


1. Determine the equivalent units of production with respect to (a) direct labor and (b) direct materials.

2. Compute both the direct labor cost and the direct materials cost per equivalent unit.

3. Compute both direct labor cost and direct materials cost assigned to (a) units completed and transferred out, and (b) ending goods in process inventory.

4. The company sells and ships all units to customers as soon as they are completed. Assume that an error is made in determining the percentage of completion for units in ending inventory. Instead of being 30% complete with respect to labor, they are actually 75% complete. Write a one page memo to the plant manager describing how this error affects its April financial statements.
