fleaitnway uses a process—costing system to compute the unit
costs of the minerals that it produces. It has three departments: Mixing, Tableting, and Bottling. In Mixing, at
the beginning of the process all materials are added and the
ingredients for the minerals are measured, sifted, and blended
together. The mix is transferred nut in gallon containers. The Tableting Department takes the powdered mint and places it in
capsules. Dne gallon of powdered mix converts to 1,500 capsules. After the capsules are filled and polished, they are
transferred to Bottling where they are placed in bottles,
which are then affixed with a safety seal and a lid and
labeled. Each bottle receives 50 capsules. During July, the following results are available for the first
two departments [direct materials are added at the beginning
in both departments): Overhead in both departments is applied as a percentage of
direct labor costs. In the Mining Department, overhead is 200
percent of direct labor. In the Tableting Department, the
overhead rate is 15!} percent of direct labor. Required: 1. Prepare a production report for the Mixing Department
using the FIFO method. Follow the five steps outlined in the
chapter. If required, round your cost per equivalent unit answers to three decimal places and use them in subsequent
computations. Round all other calculations and final answers to the nearest dollar.
