Just to confirm - is the first item salaries of 360,000 or sales of 360,000?
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
Sales

Cost of Goods Sold is Calculated as Sales less Gross Profit.

360,000 - 210,000 = 150,000

Finished Goods Inventory = Cost of Goods Manufactured Less Cost of Goods Sold

180,000 - 150,000 = 30,000

Direct Materials Cost = Direct Materials Purchased Less Materials Inventory

111,000 - 15,000 = 96,000

Work in Process Inventory = Manufacturing Costs less Cost of Goods Manufactured

207,000 - 180,000 = 27,000

Direct Labor = Manufacturing Costs Less Direct Materials Less Overhead.

Overhead in this problem is Indirect Labor Plus Depreciation

207,000 - 96,000 - 78,000 -12,000= 21,000
