Unformatted text preview: M I D TER M STUDY GU IDE Please review problems worked in the Modules and Discussion Threads as well as the sample problem solutions posted in Doc sharing. (Do not study only the examples that I have provided below. There are many variations to these problems. I have provided examples so you will know what types of problems I am refer ring to.) 1. Calculate budgeted variable cost per unit, fixed cost per unit, total variable costs, and total fixed costs. (Chapter 1; 4 problems @ 5 points each.)

Total fixed costs = $800 + $1200 + $1000 = $3000 Fixed cost per unit = $3000/2000 = $1.50 Total variable costs = $8500 + $9000 = $17,500 Variable cost per unit = $17,500/2000 = $8.75 2. Characteristics of managerial accounting. (Chapter 1; 5 points) See textbook pp. 7-9 as well as lecture and discussion threads. 3. Cost terms used in managerial accounting.

Calculate cost of job. (Chapter 2; 5 points) Example: The Tacoma Company allocates overhead based on a predetermined overhead rate of $8.00 per direct labor hour.
