Here is her forecasted income statement for April, when she expects to produce and sell 3,000 meals: Sales revenue $18,000 $6.00 per unit Costs of meals produced $13,500 4.50 per unit Gross profit $4500 $1.50 per unit Administrative costs $ 2,100 0.07 Operating profit $2,400 $0.80 Fixed costs included in this income statement are 4,500 for meal production and $600 for administrative costs. Maria has received a special request from an organization sponsoring a picnic to raise funds for the Special Olympics. This organization is willing to pay $3.50 per meal for 300 meals on April 10. Maria has sufficient idle capacity to fill this special order. These meals will incur all of the variable costs of meals produced, but variable administrative costs and total fixed costs will not be affected. a. What impact would accepting this special order have on operating profit? b. Should Maria accept the order? 7. Mobility partners makes wheelchairs and other assistive devices. For years it has made the rear wheel assembly for its wheelchairs. A local bicycle manufacturing firm, trailblazers, inc offered to sell these rear wheel assemblies to mobility. If mobility makes the assembly, its cost per rear wheel assembly is a as follows (based on annual production of 2,000 units): Direct materials $25 Direct labor $53 Variable overhead $16 Fixed overhead $47 Total $141 Trailblazers has offered to sell the assembly to mobility for $110 each. The total order would amount to 2,000 rear wheel assemblies per year , which mobility?s management will buy instead of make if mobility can save at least $10,000 per year.

Mel?s kitchen and adjoining meeting room operate at 70 percent of capacity. Mel?s purchases the cookies for $0.60 each but is considering making them instead. Mel?s can bake each cookie for $0.20 for materials, $0.15 for direct labor and $0.45 for overhead without increasing its capacity. The $0.45 for overhead includes an allocation of $0.30 per cookie for fixed overhead. However, total fixed overhead for the company would not increase if mel?s makes cookies. Mel himself has come to you for advice. ?it would cost me $0.80 to make the cookies, but only $0.60 to buy. Should I continue buying them?? materials and labor are variable costs, but variable overhead would be only $0.15 per cookie. Two cookies are put into every lunch a. how would you advise mel?

How many machine hours were worked during the period? Show computations. 9. compute equivalent units: Weighted- Average Method Clean Corporation manufactures liquid window cleaner. The following information concerns its work in process: ? Beginning inventory, 8,000 partially complete gallons ? Transferred out, 42,000 gallons ? Ending inventory (materials are 10 percent complete; conversion costs are 20 percent complete) ? Started this month 48,000 gallons a. Compute the equivalent units for materials using the weighted- average method. b. Compute the equivalent units for conversion costs using the weighted-average method. 10. compute equivalent units: Weighted- Average Method Missouri Corporation shows the following information concerning the work in process at its plant: ? Beginning inventory was partially complete (material s are 100 percent complete; conversion costs are 60 percent complete) ? Started this month, 180000 units ? Transferred out, 150,000 units ? Ending inventory, 100,000 units (materials are 100percent complete; conversion costs are 15 percent complete) a. Compute the equivalent units for materials using the weighted-average method. b. Compute the equivalent units for conversion costs using the weighted-average method. 11. Compute Equivalent Units: FIFO method Materials are added at the beginning of the production process at Santiago Company which uses a FIFO process costing system. The following information on the physical flow of units is available for the month of april: ? Beginning work in process (40%complete) 45,000 ? Started in April 510,000 ? Completed in April and transferred out 480,000 ? Ending work in process (70% complete) 75,0000 a. Compute the equivalent units for the conversion costs calculation.,where else can i get assistance?
