Use the information in Exercise 28 except assume that Kahil Mfg. uses FIFO costing. Prepare a schedule showing the August 2013 computation of FIFO equivalent units of production and cost per equivalent unit.
In Exercise 28, Kahil Mfg. makes skateboards and uses a weighted average process costing system. On May 1, 2013, the company had 400 boards in process that were 70 percent complete as to material and 85 percent complete as to conversion. During the month, 3,800 additional boards were started, and 300 boards were still in process (40 percent complete as to material and 60 percent complete as to conversion) at the end of May. Cost information for May 2013 is as follows:
Beginning WIP Inventory costs
Direct material ........ $ 4,349
Conversion .......... 4,658
Current period costs
Direct material ........ 60,775
Conversion .......... 46,750
