Computing equivalents units and assigning costs to completed units and ending work in process; no beginning inventory or cost transferred in (30 -45min)
Sue Electronics makes CD players in three processes: programming, and packaging. Direct materials are added at the beginning of the assembly process. Conversion costs are incurred evenly throughout the process. The Assembly Department had no work in process on March 31. In mid - April, Sue Electronics started production on 100,000 CD players. Of this number, 76100 CD players were assembled during April and transferred out to the Programming Department.

Direct materials costing $375,720 were positioned in production in Assembly during April, and direct labor of $157,700 and manufacturing overhead of $98,595 were assigned to that department.
