Answer: Inventory at December 31 2016 is \$21640

Explanation:

For computing the ending inventory for the year 2016 we need to do the following calculations which are shown below:

Ending inventory for the year 2016 = Beginning inventory + cost of goods purchased - cost of goods sold

where,

Beginning Inventory = \$9,600

Cost of Goods Purchased = Purchase - Purchase Returns - Purchase Discounts + Freight on Goods under shipping point

= \$41,600 - \$760 - \$560 + \$1,760

= \$42,040

And, the cost of goods sold is \$30,000

So, the ending inventory for the year 2016 is = \$9,600 + \$42,040 - \$30,000

Ending Inventory= \$21,640
