Direct material (per unit) 36.00
Coversion costs
Direct labor 135,000

3. How much of the company's total cost for the year would be included as an expense on the periods income statement under a) absorptation costing b) variable costings and c) throughput costing

4. Prepare Adelphia throughout costing income statment

5. Build a spreadsheet: Construct an excel spreadsheet to solve requirements 1 and 2 above. Show how the solution will change if the following information changes: the direct material costs is \$35 per unit and the total direct labor cost is \$130,000.
