Expert Answer

Step 1

Step1: Calculating the value of ending inventory at base year price. We have,

Ending inventory at base year price = Ending inventory / Current year price index

Ending inventory at base year price = $ 215,000 / 1.25

Ending inventory at base year price = $ 172,000

Therefore, the ending inventory at base year price shall be $ 172,000

Step 2

Step2: Calculating the value of real-dollar quantity increase in inventory. We have,

Real-dollar quantity increase in inventory = Ending inventory at base year price – Base year                                      inventory

Real-dollar quantity increase in inventory = $ 172,000 - $ 100,000

Real-dollar quantity increase in inventory = $ 72,000

Therefore, the real-dollar quantity increase in inventory shall be $ 72,000
