The;departmental costs for the cutting and assembly departments are overhead costs.;Predetermined overhead rates in the Cutting and Assembly departments are based;on machine-hours.;1. Assume that the company uses the direct;method of allocation. The predetermined overhead rate in the Assembly;Department would be closest to;A) $16.27;B) $15.00;C) $15.87;D) $16.00;2.

The following data have been gathered;Selling price of X-47;I.;Variable cost of processing X-47 into Xylene.;II. The;avoidable fixed costs of processing X-47 into Xylene.;III.The;selling price of Xylene.;IV.The;joint cost of the process from which X-47 is produced.;Which of the above items are relevant in a decision of;whether to sell the X-47 as is or process it further into Xylene?;A) I, II, and IV.;B) I, II, III, and IV.;C) II, III, and V.;D) I, II, III, and V.;4. Robot;Inc. has some material that originally cost $73,500. The material has a scrap;value of $45,600 as is, but if reworked at a cost of $6,600, it could be sold;for $58,100. What would be the incremental effect on the company's overall;profit of reworking and selling the material rather than selling it as is as;scrap?;A) -$22,000;B) -$67,600;C) $5,900;D) $51,500;5.;Candle Corporation is preparing a bid for a special order that would;require 880 liters of material R9S. The company already has 280 liters of this;raw material in stock that originally cost $6.20 per liter. Material R9S is;used in the company's main product and is replenished on a periodic basis. The;resale value of the existing stock of the material is $5.45 per liter. New;stocks of the material can be readily purchased for $6.20 per liter. What is;the relevant cost of the 880 liters of the raw material when deciding how much;to bid on the special order?;A) $5,456;B) $5,006;C) $4,796;D) $5,456;6. Oz Corporation is a;specialty component manufacturer with idle capacity. Management would like to;use its extra capacity to generate additional profits. A potential customer has;offered to buy 2,300 units of component OTB. Each unit of OTB requires 9 units;of material G58 and 7 units of material H66. Data concerning these two;materials follow;Material;Units in Stock;Original Cost Per;Unit;Current Market;Price Per Unit;Disposal Value;Per Unit;G58;18,940;$4.40;$4.65;$4.35;H66;15,700;$6.10;$6.50;$4.80;Material G58 is in use in many of the company's products;and is routinely replenished. Material H66 is no longer used by the company in;any of its normal products and existing stocks would not be replenished once;they are used up.;What would be the relevant cost of the materials, in;total, for purposes of determining a minimum acceptable price for the order for;product OTB?;A) $189,890;B) $174,215;C) $168,533;D) $200,905;7.
