Job no. 23 had been completed at a cost of $42,000 and was part of finished good inventory. There was a $5,000 balance in the raw materials inventory count. 
During the month of Jan, the company began production on jobs 26 and 27, and completed jobs 25 and 26. Jobs 23 and 25 were sold on account during the month for $63,000 and $74,000, respectively.
