Raleigh Department Store uses the conventional retail method for the year ended December 31, 2016. Available information follows:

1. The inventory at January 1, 2016, had a retail value of \$36,000 and a cost of \$29,570 based on the conventional retail method.
2. Transactions during 2016 were as follows:
 Cost Retail Gross purchases \$ 165,860 \$ 400,000 Purchase returns 5,600 29,000 Purchase discounts 4,100 Gross sales 323,000 Sales returns 10,000 Employee discounts 3,500 Freight-in 30,000 Net markups 16,000 Net markdowns 29,000

Sales to employees are recorded net of discounts.

1. The retail value of the December 31, 2017, inventory was \$87,450, the cost-to-retail percentage for 2017 under the LIFO retail method was 67%, and the appropriate price index was 106% of the January 1, 2017, price level.
2. The retail value of the December 31, 2018, inventory was \$41,965, the cost-to-retail percentage for 2018 under the LIFO retail method was 66%, and the appropriate price index was 109% of the January 1, 2017, price level.

Required:
1. Estimate ending inventory for 2016 using the conventional retail method.
2. Estimate ending inventory for 2016 assuming Raleigh Department Store used the LIFO retail method.
3. Assume Raleigh Department Store adopts the dollar-value LIFO retail method on January 1, 2017. Estimating ending inventory for 2017 and 2018.

Estimate ending inventory for 2016 assuming Raleigh Department Store used the LIFO retail method.

these are the right number I'm having a hard time figuring out DVL in retail cost 2017 ???

Inventory at 2016 –

Conventional Retail Method = Retail @ 77,500 Cost @ 39,525

LIFO Retail Method                 = Retail @ 77,500 Cost @ 51,150

Inventory at 2017 using Dollar Value LIFO method =??

Inventory at 2018 using Dollar Value LIFO method = \$25,410

Step 1

Under Convectional Retail Method 2016 Ending Invetory Has been computed as below

 Cost Retail Beginning Inventory 29,570 36,000 Net Purchases(less Purchase Return and discount add freight) 186,160 371,000 Add Markup 16,000 Inventory available for sale 215,730 423,000 Ratio of Cost to retail (215730/423000=0.51) Less Markdowns (29,000) Less. Net sales (316500) Ending Inventory at retail 77,500 Cost to Retail Ratio 0.51 Ending Invetory at cost 39,525

Step 2

Under LIFO Retail method, the ending inventory for 2016 has been calculated as beiow

 Cost Retail Net Purchases 186,160 371,000 Add Markups 16,000 Less Markdowns (29,000) Total (without beginning Inventory) 186,160 358,000 Ratio of cost to retail (186,160/358,000=0.52) Ending Inventory at retail under convectional method 77,500 Cost to retail ratio 0.52 Ending inventory at cost LIFO retail 40,300

3.

3. The retail value of invetory on Dec 31, 2017=\$87,450

Cost to retail %=67%

So, cost of inventory on Dec 31=87,450*67%=\$58,591.5

Step 3

3. The retail value of invetory on Dec 31, 2017=\$87,450

Cost to retail %=67%

So...
