Answer #1

Number of units consigned = 20
Cost per unit = $350
Shipping charges = $1,800
Total cost of units consigned = Number of units consigned x Cost per unit + Shipping charges
= 20 x 350 + 1,800
= 7,000 + 1,800
= $8,800
Number of units sold by consignee = 15
Cost of goods sold by consignee = Total cost of units consigned x Number of units sold by consignee/Number of units consigned
= 8,800 x 15/20
= $6,600
Inventory value of the units unsold = Total cost of units consigned - Cost of goods sold by consignee
= 8,800 – 6,600
= $2,200

Sales revenue (15 x 850) 12,750
Cost of goods sold -6,600
Consignee's commission (12,750 x 6%) -765
Advertising -300
Installation cost -390
Profit $4,695

The total profit on units sold for the consignor is $4,695.
