    Solution Summary

    Your tutorial is attached in Excel. Click in cells to see computations. This is a format that can now be used for other problems (just change amounts at the top and the worksheet will update the amounts). You can see that materials and conversion costs have to be handled separately and then combined. I assume the weighted average method as the problem did not specify weighted average or FIFO.
