PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCE EXAMINATION : JUNE, 2009 2 You are required to segregate the semi-variable cost and calculate : (a) Variable cost per unit; and (b) Total fixed cost. (5 × 2 = 10 Marks) Answer (i) A B Time Allowed (Hrs.) 100 100 Time Taken (Hrs.) 60 80 Time Saved (Hrs.) 40 20 Let the rate of wages of the worker B is Rs.x per hour Normal Wages 1440 80x (Time taken × Hourly rate of wages) (60×24) Bonus 480 16x (1/2 × 40 × 24) ) x 80 ( 100 20 1920 96x According to the problem, Total earnings of A = Total earnings of B 1920 = 96x x = 96 1920 = Rs.20 Hourly rate of wages of the worker is Rs.20 per hour. Alternative Solution: In case of worker B, in place of x, it can be written as ‘80x hourly rate’. Hence final equation will be 96x hourly rate = 1920 Hourly rate of B = 96 1920 = Rs. 20 (ii) Product Cost vis-à-vis Period cost Product costs are associated with the purchase and sale of goods.
