there is no need to upload the calculations. These are just to understand the concept and to reply the answers of the GDB.

Product O be sold at split off point and product P may be put through second process.

here the matter is further processing cost which  14000(8000+6000)  here u have to find benefit or not benefit.. by allocating through split off.

So which product we will consider better ?
This will be solved by with the examples of lesson 26

 from where we get the 3000, 42000 and 46000? shakeel ahmed?

Joint processing cost = Rs 42000
sales value = Rs 46000
Total profit at split off pt = Rs 3000

Classification of by product
By product can be classified into two categories:
1. Requiring no further process, for example Bran
2. Requiring further processing, for example Hides


42000               45000

?  53200            57000


AT SPLIT OFF POINT 45000 -42000=3000

AFTER FURTHER COSTING  57000-53200= 3800


ab ye kya hai

ye 53200 kesy aaya plz tell me?

han g ye kahan sy aaya?

yeh GDB to gai koi solution ni mila
