    3924

    Explanation:

    The relevant cost is the price of the actual quantity of materials to be used for the job. Although they can only buy in 1000, the relevant cost is the cost of buying the 720 liters of the material regardless of their surplus or loss.

    relevant cost = 720 * 5.45 = $ 3924

    Answer:a. $3924

    Explanation:

    The product Y51B which is in stock was bought for $5.5, selling at a surplus will be $4.5, however the firm must consider the replacement cost of the material if it's used for the production and this is the cost that will be used to value Y51B for the new project. Which is $5.45 * 720 units which gives $ 3924
