                Purchased           70           80           5600                      

                Total      130                         9000                      

                Less: Closing stock           30

a)            Under FIFO                                                                        

 

                Computation of Cost of goods sold and closing inventory:                                            

                                                                Amount in $                      

                                Units (a)               cost price per unit (b)     Total cost (a*b)                

                Cost of goods sold           20           50           1000                      

                                40           60           2400                      

                                40           80           3200                      

                                                                6600                      

 

                Closing inventory             30           80           2400      

b)            Under LIFO                                                                        

 

                Computation of Cost of goods sold and closing inventory:                                            

                                                                Amount in $                      

                                Units (a)               cost price per unit (b)     Total cost (a*b)                

                Cost of goods sold           70           80           5600                      

                                30           60           1800      

                                                                7400      

                Closing inventory             10           60           600                        

                                20           50           1000                      

                                                                1600                      

c)            Under Weighted average method          

                Computation of Cost of goods sold and closing inventory:                                            

                                                                Amount in $                      

                                Units (a)               cost price per unit (b)     Total cost (a*b)                

                Opening inventory          20           50           1000

                Purchased           70           80           5600                      

                Total      130                         9000                      

                Therefore weighted average cost per unit =9000/130                                    

                                                                         69.23                                           

                Cost of goods sold           =69.23*100                            6,923.08                                          

                Closing inventory             =69.23*30                              2,076.92
