Great Beans produces jelly beans in three sequential processing departments: Centers, Shells, and Packaging. Assume that the Shells processing department began September with $ 18,100 of unfinished jelly bean centers. During September, the Shells process used $ 42,500 of direct materials, used $ 12,500 of direct labor, and was allocated $ 17,000 of manufacturing overhead. In addition, $ 126,900 was transferred out of the Centers processing department during the month and $ 196,200 was transferred out of the Shells processing department during the month. These transfers represent the cost of the jelly beans transferred from one process to another.
