2. Assume the second trigger point in Requirement 1 is the sale of goods. What would change for the backflush costing journal entries?
3.What if there is only one trigger point and it is (a) completion of the goods or (b) sale of goods? how would the backflush costing journal entries differ from Requirment 1 for (a) and (b)?
