Prior to October 2014, the company had been profitable every month. The company’s
president is concerned about the accuracy of the income statement. As her friend, you have
been asked to review the income statement and make necessary corrections. After examining
other manufacturing cost data, you have acquired additional information as follows.
1. Inventory balances at the beginning and end of October were:

  1-Oct 31-Oct
Raw materials   18,000  29,000
Work in process   16,000  14,000
Finished goods   30,000  45,000

2. Only 75% of the utilities expense and 60% of the insurance expense apply to factory operations.
The remaining amounts should be charged to selling and administrative activities.

(a) Prepare a schedule of cost of goods manufactured for October 2014.
(b) Prepare a correct income statement for October 2014.
