CHAPTER EIGHT

EXERCISE 8-16 (20-25 minutes)

(a) Calculations

1.
2,100 units available for sale – 1,400 units sold = 700 units in the ending inventory.

500 @ \$4.58 =
\$2,290

200 @ 4.60 = 920

700
\$3,210
Ending inventory at FIFO cost.

2.
\$9,240 cost of goods available for sale  2,100 units available for sale = \$4.40 weighted-average unit cost.

700 units X \$4.40 = \$3,080 Ending inventory at weighted-average cost.

(b) Analysis of methods
FIFO will yield the highest ending inventory and therefore the highest current ratio. FIFO uses the most recent costs to price the ending inventory units. The company has experienced rising purchase prices.
FIFO gives the higher inventory values, a lower cost of goods sold (beginning inventory + purchases – ending inventory) and a higher gross profit.
