Direct Materials Added              $195,500
Direct Labor                            $258,000
Manufacturing Overhead            $241,200

Direct material added            80%
Conversion costs                  50%

Materials added               60%
Conversion costs             40%

There were no incomplete units in the Spraying Department at the beginning of the period.
Materials added and conversion costs are acquired evenly throughout the process.
