6. Chapter 17 The Zygon Corporation was recently formed to produce a semiconductor chip that forms an essential part of the personal computer manufactured by a major corporation.

Accounting records indicate that 475,000 chips were started in June, and that 425,000 chips were completed. Ending inventory was 50% complete as to conversion costs. Required: a. What is the total manufacturing cost per chip for June? b. Allocate the total costs between the completed chips and the chips in ending inventory.
