1. The Rugger company uses a process costing system. During the period, 500 units were in
beginning inventory, 1,400 were started and 1,000 units were completed and transferred out.

60% complete. Materials started at the beginning of the process and conversion costs are added
evenly throughout production. Beginning WIP had \$8,950 of materials costs and \$860 of
conversion costs. The cost of materials added during the current period amounted to \$29,050;
