The company’s chief financial officer is trying to verify the accuracy of the December 31 work in process and finished goods inventories prior to the closing the books for the year. he strongly suspects that the year-end dollar blances are incorrect, but he believes that all the other data are accurate. the year-end blanaces shown on Zap Rap’s books arae as follows:

Units Costs
Work in process, Dec. 31 (materials 100% complete; conversion 50% complete 30,000 $95,000
Finished Goods, Dec 31 50,000 $201,000

Units Materials Conversion
Work in process, Jan 1 (materials 100% complete; conversion 80% complete) 20,000 $22,000 $48,000
Started into production 800,000
Costs added during the year $880,000 $2,367,000
Units completed during the year 790,000
