Please see attached document.
Solex Company manufactures three products from a common input in a joint processing operation. Joint processing costs up to the split-off point total \$100,000 per year. The company allocates these costs to the joint products on the basis of their total sales value of the split-off point. These sales values are as follows: Product X, \$50,000; product Y, \$90,000; and product Z, \$60,000.
Each product may be sold at the split-off point or processes further. Additional processing for each product (on an annual basis) are shown below:
Product Additional Processing Costs Sales Value
X \$35,000 \$80,000
Y \$40,000 \$150,000
Z \$12,000 \$75,000
Which product or products should be sold at the split-off point, and which product or products should be processed further? Show computations.
