Thayn Company produces an arthritis medication that passes through two departments: Mixing and Tableting. Thayn uses the weighted average method. Data for February for Mixing is as follows: BWIP was zero; EWIP had 36,000 units, 50% complete; and 470,000 units were started. Tableting&#39;s data for February is as follows: BWIP was 34,000 units, 20% complete; and 12,000 units were in EWIP, 40% complete.

Required:

1. For Mixing, calculate the (a) number of units transferred to Tableting, and (b) equivalent units of production.

 a. Units transferred to Tableting                   ___________ units b. Equivalent units of production                  ___________ units

2. For Tableting, calculate the number of units transferred out to Finished Goods.
