Reporting in Action — BTN 5-1 (\$ millions for all parts) 1. Ending inventories at September 29, 2012: \$791. Ending inventories at September 24, 2011: \$776. 2. September 29, 2012: \$791 / \$176,064 = 0.0045 or 0.45% September 24, 2011: \$776 / \$116,371 = 0.0067 or 0.67% 3. Apple’s inventories are its smallest asset at September 29, 2012. Goodwill has a slightly larger balance, but every other asset account is at least double the value of its inventory. Although Apple does not carry a large inventory balance in comparison to its other assets, inventories are still an important item for Apple. 4. Reviewing notes to its financial statements, we see from Note 1 under the subheading “inventories” that Apple’s inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market. Apple uses the first-in-first-out basis to determine cost. Apple’s inventories consist mostly of finished goods. 5. a. Inventory turnover = Average inventory = (\$791+ \$776) / 2 = \$783.50 Inventory turnover = \$87,846 / \$783.50 = 112.1 times b. Days’ sales in inventory = x 365 = (\$791/\$87,846) x 365 = 3.29 days 6. Solution depends on the financial statement information obtained.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
