Illinois Soy Products (ISP) buys soybeans and processes them into other soy products. Each ton of soybeans that ISP purchases for $ 340 can be converted for an additional $ 190 into 575 pounds of soy meal and 160 gallons of soy oil. A pound of soy meal can be sold at splitoff for $ 1.24 and soy oil can be sold in bulk for $ 4.25 per gallon. ISP can process the 575 pounds of soy meal into 725 pounds of soy cookies at an additional cost of $ 380. Each pound of soy cookies can be sold for $ 2.24 per pound. The 160 gallons of soy oil can be packaged at a cost of $ 240 and made into 640 quarts of Soyola. Each quart of Soyola can be sold for $ 1.35.

1. Allocate the joint cost to the cookies and the Soyola using the following:
a. Sales value at splitoff method
b. NRV method
2. Should ISP have processed each of the products further? What effect does the allocation method have on this decision?
