for job no. 411

Opening balance Rs. 1270 ( see 1. point in question )
Direct material Rs. 280
Direct labour Rs. 450
Factory overhead @ 2 per hour = Rs. 400
Factory cost  Rs. 2400

Add selling expenses 15%

3200 X 15% = Rs. 480

see working note for calculating bill price of job no. 411
Cost of sale Rs. 2880
Profit 10% of billing price
3200 X 10% = Rs. 320
ii) Sale price or bill price of job no. 411 = Rs. 3200

Working note for calculating of bill price

Bill price = X

X = 2400 (Factory cost )+ X x 15% ( Selling expenses) + X x 10% ( profit )

X = 2400 +.15 X +.10 X

X -.25X = 2400

.75 X = 2400

X = 3200
