Spoiled units are disposed of at zero net disposal value. Logic Co uses the weighted average method of process costing. Summary data for September 2017 are as follows:
1. For each cost category, compute equivalent units. Show physical units in the first column of your schedule.
2. Summarize the total costs to account for; calculate the cost per equivalent unit for each cost category; and assign costs to units completed and transferred out (including normal spoilage), to abnormal spoilage, and to units in ending work in process.
