2

Process costing should be used to assign costs to products when:

3

Which one of the following statements is true?
a) In a job-costing system, individual jobs use different quantities of production resources
b) In a process-costing system each unit uses approximately the same amount of resources.
c) An averaging process is used to calculate unit costs in a job-costing system.
d) Both (a) and (b) are true.

d) Both (a) and (b) are true.

4

Conversion costs:

b) include direct materials
c) in process costing are usually considered to be added evenly throughout the production process
d) include both (b) and (c)

c) in process costing are usually considered to be added evenly throughout the production process

5

An example of a business which would have no beginning or ending inventory but could use process costing to compute unit costs would be:
a) a clothing manufacturer
b) a corporation whose sole business activity is processing the customer deposits of several banks
c) a manufacturer of custom houses
d) a manufacturer of large TV's

b) a corporation whose sole business activity is processing the customer deposits of several banks

6

Which of the following statement(s) concerning conversion costs is correct?
a) Estimated the degree of completion of direct materials in a partially completed unit is usually easier to calculate than estimating the degree of completion for conversion costs.
b) The calculation of equivalent units is relatively easy for the textile industry.
c) Estimates are usually not considered acceptable
d) Both (b) and (c) are correct

a) Estimated the degree of completion of direct materials in a partially completed unit is usually easier to calculate than estimating the degree of completion for conversion costs.

7

The purpose of the equivalent-unit computation is:

b) to assist the business in determining ending inventory
c) to convert partially completed units into the amount of completed output units that could be made with that quantity of input
d) both (b) and (c)

c) to convert partially completed units in the amount of completed output units that could be made with that quantity of input

8

In a process-costing system, the calculation of equivalent units is used for:
a) calculating the dollar amount of ending inventory
b) calculating the dollar amount of the COGS for the accounting period
c) calculating the dollar cost of a particular job
d) both (a) and (b)

d) both (a) and (b)

9
