2. Using FIFO, calculate ending inventory and cost of goods sold at October 31.

Ending event-

cost of good sold-

Under FIFO method goods purchased first are sold first, therefore cost of goods sold will be , sale made on October 4th will be from the beginning inventory of 4 units, sale made on October 13th will be made from 2 units from beginning inventory and 1 unit from purchase made on October 10th. Sale made on October 28th will be made from 4 units from purchase made on October 10th and 3 units from purchase made on October 20th.

Cost of goods sold

= 4*850 + 2*850 + 1*860 + 4*860 + 3*870

= 3,400 + 1,700 + 860 + 3,440 + 2,610

= \$12,010

Ending inventory will be from 1 unit from purchase made on October 20th and 8 units from purchase made on October 30th.

= 1*870 + 8*880

= 870 + 7,040

= \$7,910.
