units
4.50              
                     
Prescott produced two styles of bookcases in October: the standard bookcase and an unfinished bookcase, which has fewer parts and requires no finishing. The totals for quantities, direct
materials costs, and other data follow:
         
Product Total Units

Unfinished bookcase 3,500 35,000 35,000 7,000 3,500          
                     
Requirements:                    
1. Compute the manufacturing product cost per unit of each type of bookcase.
2. Suppose that pre-manufacturing activities, such as product design, were assigned to the standard bookcases at $7 each, and to the unfinished bookcases at $2 each. Similar analyses
were conducted of post-manufacturing activities such as distribution, marketing, and customer service. The post-manufacturing costs were $22 per standard bookcase and $14 per
unfinished bookcase. Compute the full product costs per unit.
3. Which product costs are reported in the external financial statements? Which costs are used for management decision making? Explain the difference.
4. What price should Prescott's managers set for unfinished bookcases to earn $15 per bookcase?
