# S&J produces two products through a single manufacturing process.

### Resolved Question:

S&J produces two products through a single manufacturing process. Each batch of product results in 400 pounds of product S and 600 pounds of product J.

16. Using the physical units method of allocating joint production costs would result in an allocation to product S of: _____.

17. Using the relative sales value approach of allocating joint production costs would result in an allocation to product S of _____.

16. The physical units method attempts to distribute production costs based on a unit of measure, in this case, pounds. Given the ratio of product S being 400 out of 1000 total pounds of product produced per batch, the allocation of production costs would be \$20,000, as this is equivalent to 40% of the total.
17. The relative sales value approach of allocating joint production costs uses the alternative perspective of sales value. In this case, the total value produced per batch is (400 x \$30) for product S, or, \$12000, and (600 x \$20) for product J, which is also \$12000. This even ratio makes the allocation of product S based on the relative sales value approach \$25,000, equivalent to 50% of the total sales value.
