complete as to conversion costs. Total direct material put into process cost
\$57,500. Total conversion cost put into process cost \$84,375. Beginning work in
process cost \$21,250; \$10,000 for materials and \$11,250 for conversion. All
materials are added at the start of the production process, and conversion
costs are incurred uniformly throughout manufacturing. Sunshine Company uses a
weighted-average process cost system.
