Compute the cost assigned to ending inventory using (a) FIFO, (b) LIFO, (c) weighted average, and (d) specific identification. For specific identification, the March 9 sale consisted of 95 units from beginning inventory and 225 units from the March 5 purchase; the March 29 sale consisted of 75 units from the March 18 purchase and 115 units from the March 25 purchase. (Due to rounding, the sum of Cost of Goods Sold and Ending inventory may not equal the Cost of Good available for sales. Round your per unit costs to 3 decimal places and inventory balances to the nearest dollar amount. Omit the "$" sign in your response.)



 


 


2) The inventory turnover ratio:


























 



Calculation depends on the company's inventory valuation method.



 



Reveals how many times a company turns over (sells) its merchandise inventory.



 



Is used to measure solvency.



 



Validates the acid-test ratio.



 



Is used to analyze profitability.



 


 









3)  On December 31 of the current year, Hewett Company reported an ending inventory balance of $213,000. The following additional information is also available:



 
























Hewett sold goods costing $37,600 to Trump Enterprises on December 28 and shipped the goods on that date with shipping terms of FOB shipping point. The goods were not included in the ending inventory amount of $213,000 because they were not in Hewett's warehouse.





Hewett purchased goods costing $43,600 on December 29. The goods were shipped FOB destination and were received by Hewett on January 2 of the following year. The shipment was a rush order that was supposed to arrive by December 31. These goods were included in the ending inventory balance of $213,000.





Hewett's ending inventory balance of $213,000 included $14,600 of goods being held on consignment from Rumsfeld Company. (Hewett Company is the consignee.)





Hewett's ending inventory balance of $213,000 did not include goods costing $94,600 that were shipped to Hewett on December 27 with shipping terms of FOB destination and were still in transit at year-end.



 









Based on the above information, the correct balance for ending inventory on December 31 is:



 


























 



$198,400



 



$169,400



 



$192,400



 



$154,800



 



$207,000
