As part of your answer, be sure to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the criteria. Question #6 (9 points) a) Why is it a good idea for a firm to allocate corporate costs to operating units? b) What are 2 examples of corporate costs that can be allocated to operating units? c) What is the danger in allocating corporate costs to operating units? Question #7 (15 points) The ABC Company has two operating divisions and two support divisions. The following table presents the amount of hours of service provided by the two support divisions: OP 1 OP 2 SUP 1 SUP 2 SUP 1 2000 4,000 0 2,000 SUP2 6,000 3,000 1,000 0 The costs for the four departments appear below: Department Costs OP 1 $350,000 OP 2 $400,000 SUP 1 $250,000 SUP 2 $170,000 a) Allocate the support department costs to the operating departments using the direct method. b) Allocate the support department costs to the operating departments using the step-down method, starting with Support Department 1. c) State the equations one would use to allocate the support department costs to the operating departments using the reciprocal method. You do not need to solve the equations!,Thank you, I need this assignment by the ninth,Good afternoon, I hope this is not to much to ask and I understand you are working on this assignment. Is it possible that whatever you have finish thus far you send it to me. I have problems similar to these and I would like to compare to see if I am doing them right. Thank you!,You are the best. Thank you!,Good afternoon, After reviewing the questions, I realized that 1 was missing from the assignment: Question #8 (16 points) A company purchases and processes 15,000 gallons of raw material at a cost of $60,000. From this process, it produces 1,200 pounds of JP1 and 1,800 pounds of JP2. JP1 can be sold for $21 per pound or processed further into 12,000 units of FP1 at a total cost of $12,750. FP1 has a selling price of $4 per unit. JP2 can be sold for $26 per pound or processed further into 20,400 units of FP2 at a total cost of $26,250. FP2 has a selling price of $5 per unit. Assume that the company sells only FP1 and FP2. In other words, it further processes both joint products. Also, assume there is no beginning or ending inventory. a) Allocate the joint costs to JP1 and JP2 using the physical measure method (based on pounds), sales value at split off method, the NRV method, and the constant gross margin percentage NRV method. b) Is it a good idea for the firm to further process the joint products? Be sure to justify your conclusions with specific calculations This was the last question that I had. Would I have to pay extra to get an answer to this question? Also, have you gotten anymore answers to the variances for Number 3. If you have can you send me an update please? Thank you!,Ok, no problem. Did you finish question number 3?,Ok, no problem. I also did not recieve an answer to number 7 and I submitted the other question in a new thread. Thank you!,HI, I have not herad anything in reference to question 3 or 7.,Thank you for question 7. Are you still working on question 3?,Sir, I have to submit question number 3 by midnight tonight. Will it be ready?,Can you give explianations why the variances are favorable and unfavorable and also the journal entries?
