Compute the: total cost of the handles

Cheetah Accessories uses four departments to produce handles for kitchen cabinets: Forming
requires mixing the raw materials, Moulding, Spraying and Drying. After leaving the Drying
Department, the handles are packaged and sent to the Finished Goods warehouse for shipment to
retail outlets.
The following data relates to the Spraying Department for the month of June:
During the month, 2,000 handles valued at $275 each were transferred from the Molding
Department to the Spraying Department.
Other production costs incurred during the month are summarized as follows:
Direct Materials Added
Direct Manufacturing Wages
Manufacturing Overhead
Process inspection occurs during the process and normally no losses are expected at this stage.
However, during the month 200 handles were rejected at inspection. Rejected units from this
department are sold as scrap at $400 each. These units had reached the following degree of
Transfer from Moulding 100%
Direct material added 80%
Conversion costs 50%
During June, 1,400 handles were completed, packaged and transferred to Finished Goods.
Work-in-progress at the end of June had reached the following degree of completion:
Transfer from Moulding 100%
Materials added 60%
Conversion costs 40%
