The cost of plastic is $5 per pound. OnJanuary 1, there are 14,000 pounds of plastic on hand, and 400 completedbuckets. Gaylor wants to have 20% of the next months material requirements onhand at the end of each month. Prepare a direct materials purchases budget forthe quarter in the space provided. Production for the quarter:26,000 + 22,000 + 40,000 = 88,000 units Direct Materials Budget for the quarter lst Quarter Production expected during the quarter 88,000 Pounds per bucket 2 Total pounds needed for production 176,000 Add ending inventory desired (20% x 45,000 x 2pounds) 18,000 Total pounds of material needed 194,000 Less beginning inventory on hand (14,000) Pounds to be purchased 180,000 Cost per pound $5.00 Cost of direct materials purchases $900,000 Problem 2 - Evans Recycleplans to produce 3,000 recycle bins during April.
