# Question: The Fields Company has two manufacturing departments forming and painting

The Fields Company has two manufacturing departments, forming and painting. The company uses the weighted-average method of process costing. At the beginning of the month, the forming department has 25,000 units in inventory, 60% complete as to materials and 40% complete as to conversion costs. The beginning inventory cost of \$60,100 consisted of \$44,800 of direct material costs and \$15,300 of conversion cost.
During the month, the forming department started 300,000 units. At the end of the month, the forming department had 30,000 units in ending inventory, 80% complete as to materials and 30% complete as to conversion. Units completed in the forming department are transferred to the painting department.
Cost information for the forming department is as follows:
Beginning work in process inventory . . . . . . . . . . . . \$ 60,100
Direct materials added during the month. . . . . . . . . 1,231,200
Conversion added during the month . . . . . . . . . . . . 896,700
1. Calculate the equivalent units of production for the forming department.
2. Calculate the costs per equivalent unit of production for the forming department.
3. Using the weighted-average method, assign costs to the forming department’s output—specifically, its units transferred to painting and its ending work in process inventory.
