# When the buyer for Superior Electronics (Exercise 1) took physical inventory of the Blu-ray players on July 31, 64 units remained in inventory.a. Calculate the dollar value of the 64 Blu-ray players by using FIFO. Units Cost/Unit Total 25 $135$3,375 30 146 4.380 9 118 1.062 64 $8,817 FIFO b. Calculate the dollar value of the 64 Blu-ray players by using LIFO. Units Cost/Unit Total 40$125 $5,000 24 118 2.832 64$7.832 LIFO c. Calculate the dollar value of the 64 Blu-ray players by using the average cost method. Round average cost to the nearest cent.Average cost == 16 , 531 127 =130.165 = $130.17 eachInventory value = 64 × 130.17 =$ 8 , 330.88

(a)

To determine

To calculate: The dollar value of 64 Blue-ray players with the help of FIFO method of inventory pricing.

UnitsCost/Unit25$135301469118 Explanation Given Information: It is given that when a buyer took physical inventory of the Blu-ray players on July 31, 64 units remained in the inventory at Superior Electronics. The information of the inventory is given as follows in the table: UnitsCost/Unit25$135301469118

Formula used:

Use following steps for FIFO method of inventory pricing:

Step1. Write the list of the number of units on hand at the end of the year and their corresponding costs starting with the ending balance and then work backward through the income shipments.

Step2. Multiply the number of units by the corresponding cost per units for each purchase.

Step3. Calculate the value of ending inventory by totaling the extension from step 2.

Calculation:

Consider the provided table:
