To determine

Calculate the correct value of inventory in each of the preceding situation under U.S. GAAP (if T uses LIFO method).

Explanation

Inventory write-down: As per GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles), the companies are required to determine the cost of the ending inventory at the end of the each reporting period. Thus, when a company finds that the amount of benefit expected from the ending inventory is below its cost, it  passes an adjusting journal entry to reduce the reported inventory amount and the net income for that period. Hence, the adjusting journal entry that is recorded at the year-end is known as inventory write-down.

LIFO: Under this inventory method, the units that are purchased last are sold first. Thus, it starts from the selling of the units recently purchased and ending with the beginning inventory.
