________________________________________

In inventory at December 31, 2013, were 8 blowers and 29 mowers. Assume the company uses a periodic inventory system.

Required 1:
(a)    Compute ending inventory valuation at December 31, 2013 under the FIFO and LIFO cost-flow assumptions. (Hint: Compute ending inventory under each method, and then compare results.)

The following data are available for Sellco for the fiscal year ended on January 31, 2014:

Problem 2

Sales    840    units
Beginning inventory    280    units    @    \$    4
Purchases, in chronological order    300    units    @    \$    5
420    units    @    \$    7
240    units    @    \$    8

Required:
(a)    Calculate cost of goods sold and ending inventory amounts under the cost-flow assumptions, FIFO, LIFO and Weighted average (using a periodic inventory system): (Round your unit cost to 2 decimal places.)

(b)    Assume that net income using the weighted-average cost-flow assumption is \$14,400. Calculate net income under FIFO and LIFO. (Round your unit cost to 2 decimal places.)
