1. Presented is selected information from Till’s April income statement and statement of cost of goods manufactured. Use T-accounts to determine the beginning balance of finished goods inventory on April 1.

  1. Cost of goods sold $230,000

    Cost of goods manufactured $210,000

    Ending finished goods inventory, April 30 $40,000





  2. 2.

If a company accumulated $45,000 of actual overhead but applied $48,000 of overhead into work in process, we would conclude

That overhead was incorrectly applied to WIP.

That overhead was over-applied by $3,000.

That overhead was under-applied by $3,000.

That overhead should have been expensed instead of included in WIP.

  4. 6.

Conversion costs are

The combined costs of converting raw materials to finished goods.

The overhead costs associated with processing a product.

The direct labor costs associated with processing a product.

All the costs that go into the manufacturing of a product (DM, DL and OH).


A company requisitioned $40,000 of materials during the year and incurred direct labor charges of $50,000. If the company began the year with a work-in-process inventory balance of $15,000 and applied overhead of $60,000, what is the ending balance of work-in-process inventory assuming no goods were moved to finished goods inventory for the year?

  1. Estimated machine hours used to set the predetermined overhead rate were 68,000, while actual hours were 64,000 for the period. Estimated (budgeted) overhead was $142,800. Assuming the company used a predetermined overhead rate, how much overhead was applied for the year?
