Question

Applying and Analyzing Inventory Costing Methods
At the beginning of the current period, Chen carried 1,000 units of its product with a unit cost of \$32. A summary of purchases during the current period follows.

Units Unit Cost Cost
Beginning Inventory 1,000 \$32 \$32,000
Purchase #1 1,800 34 61,200
Purchase #2 800 38 30,400
Purchase #3 1,200 41 49,200

(a) Assume that Chen uses the first-in, first-out method. Compute both cost of good sold for the current period and the ending inventory balance. Use the financial statement effects template to record cost of goods sold for the period.
Ending inventory balance  \$

Cost of goods sold              \$

Step 1

Assuming a sales of 3300 units in the period ans using the FIFO method (first in-first out), we arrive at the attached table for working our closing inventory.

We have to reduce the sales unit step by step from the units available in purchases and arrive at the ending inventory figure. The purchase cost per unit will then be used to calculate the ending inventory balance as done in the table.

Ending inventory ( sales of 3300 units assumed) is \$ 60,600

Step 2

Cost of Goods sold = Beginning Inventory+ purchases of the period- Ending inventory.

Usimg the numbers arrived in table in step 1 in...
