Question
1) Indiana Company incurred the following costs during the past year when planned production and actual production each totaled 20000 units:
Direct material used \$280000

\$62400.
\$64000.
\$65600.
Some other amount.
3) When allocating joint costs Weinberg calculates the final sales value of the various products manufactured and subtracts appropriate separable costs. The company is using the:

a. decision point.
separation point.
individual product point.

6) Herbster manufactures A B and C all of which are joint products and D which is classified as a by-product. If joint manufacturing costs amount to \$450000 and the company is using a popular accounting method the firm will:
a. allocate \$450000 among A B and C.
allocate \$450000 among A B C and D.
increase \$450000 by the net realizable value of D and then allocate the total among A B and C.
decrease \$450000 by the net realizable value of D and then allocate the total among A B and C.
7) Martina Inc. has two service departments (Human Resources and Building Maintenance) and two production departments (Machining and Assembly). The company allocates Building Maintenance cost on the basis of square footage and believes that Building Maintenance provides more service than Human Resources. The square footage occupied by each department follows.
Human Resources 6000
Building Maintenance 13000
Machining 18000
Assembly 26000
Assuming use of the direct method over how many square feet would the Building Maintenance cost be allocated (i.e. spread)?
19000.
44000.
50000.
63000.
I. A variable-costing income statement discloses a firm’s contribution margin.
II. Cost of goods sold on an absorption-costing income statement includes fixed costs.
III. The amount of variable selling and administrative cost is the same on absorption- and variable-costing income statements.
Which of the above statements is (are) true?
b. I only.
II only.
I and II.
II and III.
I II and III.
9) Under variable costing fixed manufacturing overhead is:
treated in the same manner as variable manufacturing overhead.
expensed immediately when incurred.
applied directly to Finished-Goods Inventory.
applied directly to Work-in-Process Inventory.
never expensed.
10) Which of the following product-costing systems is/are required for tax purposes?
a. Absorption costing.
Variable costing.
Throughput costing.
Either absorption or variable costing.
Either absorption variable costing or throughput costing.
11) Lone Star has computed the following unit costs for the year just ended:
Direct material used \$12
Direct labor \$18
Variable selling and administrative cost \$10
Fixed selling and administrative cost \$17
Under variable costing each unit of the company’s inventory would be carried at:
\$35.
\$55.
\$65.
\$84.
some other amount.
12) Rocky Mountain Company produces two products (X and Y) from a joint process. Each product may be sold at the split-off point or processed further. Additional processing requires no special facilities and production costs of further processing are entirely variable and traceable to the products involved. Joint manufacturing costs for the year were \$60000. Sales values and costs were as follows:
I. If Processed Further
Product Units Made Sales Value at Split-Off Sales Value Separable Costs
X 9000 \$40000 \$78000 \$10500
Y 6000 80000 90000 7500
If the joint production costs are allocated based on the physical-units method the amount of joint cost assigned to product X would be:
\$20000.
\$24000.
\$30000.
\$36000.
\$40000.
13) Which of the following methods recognizes some (but not all) of the services that occur between service departments?
