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
