a. Compute the ending inventory at September 30 and cost of goods sold using the FIFO and LIFO methods.

 FIFO LIFO Cost of ending inventory 20*105 = 2100 20*97 = 1940 Cost of goods sold 14442-2100 = 12342 14442-1940 = 12502

Prove :

FIFO Cost of goods sold = (26*97+45*102+20*104+30*105) = \$12342

LIFO COst of goods sold = (50*105+20*104+45*102+6*97) = \$12502

b. For both FIFO and LIFO, calculate the sum of ending inventory and cost of goods sold. What do you notice about the answers you found for each method?

 FIFO LIFO Sum of ending inventory and cost of goods sold 12342+2100 = 14442 1940+12502 = 14442
