d)
Per unit cost in simple costing system for job 410 is $1332.50 and for job 411 is $571.38. Per unit cost of job 410 is greater than that of job 411 because of the number of units produced. The cost that is incu
ed for 10 units in job 410 is very high as compared to job 411. Per unit cost in activity based costing system for job 410 is $1820 and for job 411 is $574.75. Similar to simple costing the cost is high for job 410 because of procurement of materials at a higher rate and various other cost. But if we look at the cost that are calculated using both the methods than for both the jobs per unit cost derived using the activity based costing is higher as compared to simple costing still we would say that activity costing is better as the activity cost which is higher can be identified and controlled using proper methods and techniques.
