AusSports Ltd produces sporting equipment in a number of plants across Australia. The Sydney Division’s production for November consisted of Batch P25 (1000 professional basketballs) and Batch S33 (3000 scholastic basketballs). Professional basketballs have genuine leather exteriors and are packaged in an attractive cardboard box. Scholastic basketballs use imitation leather and are sold without special packaging. Both products go through identical preparation and finishing operations. Each batch was started and finished during November, and there was no beginning or ending work in process. Costs incurred were as follows:
Batch P25, $20,000, including $1000 for packaging material
Batch S33, $30,000
Preparation Department, predetermined rate of $10.00 per unit
Finishing Department, predetermined rate of $7.00 per unit
Packaging Department, predetermined rate of 81.00 per unit
