To determine

Periodic Inventory System:

Periodic inventory system is a system, in which the inventory is updated in the accounting records on a periodic basis such as at the end of each month, quarter or year. In other words, it is an accounting method which is used to determine the amount of inventory at the end of each accounting period.

First-in-First-Out:

In First-in-First-Out method, the costs of the initially purchased items are considered as cost of goods sold, for the items which are sold first. The value of the ending inventory consists of the recent purchased items.

Last-in-Last-Out:

In Last-in-First-Out method, the costs of last purchased items are considered as the cost of goods sold, for the items which are sold first. The value of the closing stock consists of the initial purchased items.

Weighted-average cost method:

Under Weighted average cost method, the company calculates a new average cost after every purchase is made. It is determined by dividing the cost of goods available for sale by the units on hand.

To determine: value of inventory and cost of merchandise sold using first in first out method under periodic inventory system.

Explanation of Solution

The value of ending inventory is calculated as follows:

Ending Inventory(FIFO) =(26 units×$1,264)=$32,864

Calculate the cost of merchandise sold is as follows:

Amount ($)
Beginning inventory, April 1 30,000
Add: Purchases                               Table (3) 313,640
Merchandise available for sale 343,640
Less: Ending inventory, June 31 32,864
Cost of merchandise sold 310,7
