a)

To determine

Compute inventory turnover ratio and number of days’ sales in inventory.

### Explanation of Solution

Financial Ratios: Financial ratios are the metrics used to evaluate the liquidity, capabilities, profitability, and overall performance of a company.

Inventory turnover ratio is used to determine the number of times inventory used or sold during the particular accounting period.

Formula:

Inventory turnover=Cost of goods soldAverage inventory

Number of days’ sales in inventory is determined as the number of days a particular company takes to make sales of the inventory available with them.

Formula:

Number of days’ sales in invenotry=Average inventory Average daily cost of goods sold

(1)

Compute inventory turnover ratio for current year.

Inventory turnover=Cost of goods soldAverage inventory=$9,270,000$1,030,000=9.0times

Compute inventory turnover ratio for previous year.

Inventory turnover=Cost of goods soldAverage inventory=$10,800,000$900,000=12.0times

Hence, the inventory turnover ratio for current year and previous year is 9.0 times and 12.0 times.

(2)

Compute number of days’ sales in inventory for current year.

Number of days’ sales in inventory=Average inventory Average daily cost of goods sold=$10,30,000$25,397=40

b)
