Bubble Corporation manufactures two products, I and II, from a joint
process. A single production costs $4,000 and results in 100 units of I
and 400 units of II. To be ready for sale, both products must be
processed further, incurring separable costs of $1 per unit for I and $2
per unit for II. The market price for Product I is $20 and for Product
II is $15.
Allocate joint production costs to each product using the physical units method.
Allocate joint production costs to each product using the net realizable value method.
Allocate joint production costs to each product using the constant gross margin percentage method.
