Cavalerio Corporation uses the weighted-average method in its process costing system. This month, the beginning inventory in the first processing department consisted of 700 units. The costs and percentage completion of these units in beginning inventory were:

 

|  |  |Cost |Percent Complete |

|  |Materials costs................... |$9,100 |80% |

|  |Conversion costs............... |$5,400 |25% |

 A total of 7,200 units were started and 6,400 units were transferred to the second processing department during the month. The following costs were incurred in the first processing department during the month: 

|  |Materials costs................... |$96,700 |

|  |Conversion costs............... |$180,700 |

 

The ending inventory was 80% complete with respect to materials and 70% complete with respect to conversion costs.  The cost per equivalent unit for materials for the month in the first processing department is closest to:

The following production and average cost data for a month's operations have been supplied by a company that produces a single product.

           

|  |Production volume........................ |1,000 units |2,000 units |

|  |Direct materials............................. |$4.00 per unit |$4.00 per unit |

|  |Direct labor.................................... |$3.50 per unit |$3.50 per unit |

|  |Manufacturing overhead............... |$10.00 per unit |$6.20 per unit |

 

           

            The total fixed manufacturing cost and variable manufacturing cost per unit are as follows:

|[pic] |$3,600; $7.50 |

|[pic] |$3,600; $9.90 |

|[pic] |$7,600; $7.50 |

|[pic] |$7,600; $9.90 |

| | | |

First, calculate the variable manufacturing cost per unit:

| |Production Volume |Average Cost |Total Manufacturing Overhead Cost |

| |(Units) |per Unit |(units × average cost per unit) |

|High activity level |2,000 |$6.20 |$12,400 |

|Low activity level |1,000 |$10.00 |$10,000 |

Variable manufacturing overhead cost = Change in cost ÷ Change in activity

= ($12,400 − $10,000) ÷ (2,000 – 1,000) = $2.40

Fixed cost element of manufacturing overhead = Total cost − Variable cost element

= $12,400 − ($2.40 × 2,000) = $7,600

Total variable cost per unit = Direct material + Direct labor + Variable manufacturing overhead = $4.00 + $3.50 + $2.40 = $9.90

There are no fixed direct materials or direct labor, so the total fixed costs would be equal to the fixed cost portion of manufacturing overhead, or $7,600.

Chmielewski Medical Clinic measures its activity in terms of patient-visits. Last month, the budgeted level of activity was 1,560 patient-visits and the actual level of activity was 1,530 patient-visits. The clinic's director budgets for variable overhead costs of $1.10 per patient-visit and fixed overhead costs of $19,900 per month. The actual variable overhead cost last month was $1,400 and the actual fixed overhead cost was $21,720. In the clinic's flexible budget performance report for last month, what would have been the variance for the total overhead cost?

Rice Corporation currently operates two divisions which had operating results last year as follows:

             

|  |West |Troy |

|  |Division |Division |

|Sales..........................................................|$600,000 | $300,000 |

|Variable costs............................................ |  310,000 |   200,000 |

|Contribution margin.................................. |  290,000 |   100,000 |

|Traceable fixed costs................................. |  110,000 |     70,000 |

|Allocated common corporate costs........... |    90,000 |     45,000 |

|Net operating income (loss)....................... |$  90,000 |($ 15,000) |

 

 

            Since the Troy Division also sustained an operating loss in the prior year, Rice's president is considering the elimination of this division. Troy Division's traceable fixed costs could be avoided if the division were eliminated. The total common corporate costs would be unaffected by the decision. If the Troy Division had been eliminated at the beginning of last year, Rice Corporation's operating income for last year would have been:

|[pic] |$15,000 higher |

|[pic] |$30,000 lower |

|[pic] |$45,000 lower |

|[pic] |$60,000 higher |

| | | |

Troy Division:

| |Contribution margin |$100,000 |

| |Less: traceable fixed costs | 70,000 |

| |Segment margin of Troy Division |$ 30,000 |

Rice Corporation’s operating income would have been $30,000 less without the segment margin contributed by the Troy Division.

The following information relates to next year's projected operating results of the Children's Division of Grunge Clothing Corporation:

           

|  |Contribution margin........... |$200,000 |

|  |Fixed expenses................... |       500,000 |

|  |Net operating loss.............. |($300,000) |

 

            If Children's Division is dropped, half of the fixed costs above can be eliminated. What will be the effect on Grunge's profit next year if Children's Division is dropped instead of being kept?

|[pic] |$50,000 increase |

|[pic] |$250,000 increase |

|[pic] |$250,000 decrease |

|[pic] |$550,000 increase |

| | |Keep the Division |Drop the Division |Difference |

| |Contribution margin |$200,000  |$           0  |($200,000) |

| |Fixed expenses | 500,000  | 250,000  | 250,000  |

| |Net operating income (loss) |($300,000) |($250,000) |($ 50,000) |

Net operating income would increase by $50,000 if the Children’s Division were dropped. Therefore, the division should be dropped.

(Ignore income taxes in this problem.) Dowlen, Inc., is considering the purchase of a machine that would cost $150,000 and would last for 6 years. At the end of 6 years, the machine would have a salvage value of $23,000. The machine would reduce labor and other costs by $36,000 per year. Additional working capital of $6,000 would be needed immediately. All of this working capital would be recovered at the end of the life of the machine. The company requires a minimum pretax return of 12% on all investment projects. The net present value of the proposed project is closest to:

The factor of 3.326 for 6 years represents an internal rate of return of 20%.

(Ignore income taxes in this problem.) Slomkowski Corporation is contemplating purchasing equipment that would increase sales revenues by $298,000 per year and cash operating expenses by $143,000 per year. The equipment would cost $712,000 and have a 8 year life with no salvage value. The annual depreciation would be $89,000. The simple rate of return on the investment is closest to:

|[pic] |9.3% |

|[pic] |21.8% |

|[pic] |22.1% |

|[pic] |12.5% |

The simple rate of return is computed as follows:

| |Cost of machine, net of salvage value (a) |$712,000 |

| |Useful life (b) |8 years |

| |Annual depreciation (a) ÷ (b) |$89,000 |

| | | |

| |Annual incremental revenue ($298,000 − $143,000) |$155,000 |

| |Less annual depreciation |    89,000 |

| |Annual incremental net operating income |$  66,000 |

Simple rate of return = Annual incremental net operating income ÷ Initial investment = $66,000 ÷ $712,000 = 9.3%
