# 37 Process Costing Using FIFO Method
Riley’s Paper Company manufactures computer paper for laser printers. The following information is related to production costs incurred in the manufacturing process during the month of March:
|Reams of Paper||Production Costs|

|Current Period Production||93,000||394,830|

- How many reams of paper were completed in March?
- Of the reams of paper completed in March, how many were started and completed during the month?
- How many equivalent finished units did the company complete in March?
- What is the cost per equivalent unit?
- Calculate the cost of ending work in progress inventory and the cost of goods manufactured in March.
