1.Fruit Snacks Corp Inc. makes lunchbox style fruit snacks. The owner of the company is setting up a standard cost system, and she has collected the following data for one of the company’s products-fruit chews.
The data below pertain only to the fruits used in the product:
Material requirements, kilograms of fruits per dozen bags 0.95 kilograms
Allowance for waste, kilograms of fruits per dozen bags 0.06 kilograms
Allowance of rejects, kilograms of fruit per dozen bags 0.04 kilograms
Purchase price, fruit \$7.50 per kilogram
Purchase discount 4% of the purchase price
Shipping cost from the supplier \$0.30 per kilogram
Receiving and handling cost \$0.10 per kilogram

a. Determine the standard price of a kilogram of fruits. Show computations
b. Determine the standard quantity of fruits for one dozen bags, Show computations

2. Posters Now uses a standard cost system. Job 67 is for the manufacturing of 800 units of the product P100. The company’s standards for one unit of product P100 are as follows:
