1.  Computations using a job order system

General Corporation employs a job order cost system. On May 1 the following balances were extracted from the general ledger;

Work in process   \$ 35,200

Finished goods   86,900

Cost of goods sold   128,700

Work in Process consisted of two jobs, no. 101 (\$20,400) and no. 103 (\$14,800). During May, direct materials requisitioned from the storeroom amounted to \$96,500, and direct labor incurred totaled \$114,500. These figures are subdivided as follows:

 Direct Materials Direct Labor Job No. Amount Job No. Amount 101 \$5,000 101 \$7,800 115 19,500 103 20,800 116 36,200 115 42,000 Other 35,800 116 18,000 \$96,500 Other 25,900 \$114,500

Job no. 115 was the only job in process at the end of the month. Job no. 101 and three "other" jobs were sold during May at a profit of 20% of cost. The "other" jobs contained material and labor charges of \$21,000 and \$17,400, respectively.

a.  Compute the total overhead applied to production during May.

b.  Compute the cost of the ending work in process inventory.
