reports, including the production cost report you prepared. It showed
his department had 2,000 equivalent units in ending inventory. His
department has had a history of not keeping enough inventory on hand to
meet demand. He has come to you, very angry, and wants to know why you
credited him with only 2,000 units when he knows he had at least twice
that many on hand.

to Mr. Skaros why his production cost report showed only 2,000
equivalent units in ending inventory. Using a professional tone, explain
to him clearly why your report is accurate.
