(a) Compute the ending inventory at September 30 using the FIFO, LIFO and average-cost methods. (Round average cost per unit to 3 decimal places, e.g. 125.153 and final answers to 0 decimal places, e.g. 125.)

1)

Under FIFO method goods purchased first are sold first.

Therefore the ending inventory will be from purchase made in last.

Ending inventory = beginning inventory + purchase - Sales

= 140 - 104

= 36 units

This will from 23 units from purchase made on 26th and 13 units from 19th.

Ending inventory

= 23*120 + 13*119

= 2,760 + 1,547

=\$4,307

2)

Under LIFO method goods purchased last are sold first.

Therefore inventory will be from the beginning inventory and opening purchase.

Ending inventory will be from Opening inventory 13 units and 23 units from purchase made on Sept 12

= 13*115 + 23*118

= 1,495 + 2,714

= \$4,209

3)

Average cost per unit = Total cost / Total units

= 16,583/140

= \$118.45

Ending inventory

= 36*118.45

= \$4,264
