Devin Corp operates both a retail and wholesale division selling a line of submersible pumps. Both operations have significant inventory. For the retail division, Devin uses the retail weighted average inventory method and makes sure to apply it in a way that approximates lower of cost or market. In 2015, Devin has the following results in the retail division: Purchases at invoice cost \$680,000 and at suggested retail value \$1,296,000 Purchase returns were \$11,000 at cost and at suggested retail value \$20,900 Freight in on purchases \$16,400. Beginning inventory at retail is \$107,500 and the inventory reported on the 2014 balance sheet was 54,600. Mark ups were \$4,000 and mark downs were \$46,000. Net sales for the year were \$1,284,000.

Required for the retail division: I HAVE ALL OF THESE 3, JUST NEED THE OTHER 5 NOTED BELOW

1. Calculate the ending inventory that should be reported on the end of 2015 balance sheet.

2. Calculate COGS for 2015.

3. Calculate gross margin ratio for 2015

For the wholesale division, Devin uses the dollar value LIFO method of inventory. The base year established for LIFO is 2014. The inventory at the end of 2014 was calculated as \$1,040,500. For the next 3 years you have the following information:

 Ending inventory counted at cost Price level increase from 2014 Net Purchases Net Sales 2015 1,085,000 3% 2016 1,091,000 5% \$2,935,000 \$5,456,000 2017 1,398,000 10 %

Required for the retail division:

1. Calculate the ending inventory to be reported on the balance sheet for each of the three years. NEED THIS PLEASE

2. Calculate the cost of goods sold and the gross margin for 2016. NEED THIS PLEASE

At the end of 2016 in the retail division, Devin runs a report that shows all products that have not sold at all in 2016. This report shows the following three products that have been discontinued by the manufacturer: Item L78 that cost \$226 and 2 are on hand. Retail price \$299 Item R56 that cost \$65 and 6 are on hand. Retail price \$99 Item B86 that cost \$148 and 4 are on hand. Retail price \$265 While investigating these items, we find out that for all of them, the sales crew has marked them down 25% but that has not resulted in sales. The lack of parts and support for discontinued models concerns most customers. In early January, 2017 - Devin marks down the models listed above at 50% off retail price. They put the items in a more prominent position in the store and promote them in the online catalog. Sales start to trickle in.

Required for 2016:

1. Calculate the loss from the application of LCM for Devin if they apply LCM to individual products as of December 31, 2016. NEED THIS PLEASE

2. Show the journal entry to record the loss calculated in 1 if necessary. NEED THIS PLEASE

3. Show the journal entry to sell all of items L78, R56 and B86 for cash in January and February, 2017. NEED THIS PLEASE
