A record of transactions for the month of May was as follows: Purchases Sales May 1 (balance) 400 @ $4.20 May 3 300 @ $7.00 4 1,300 @ $4.10 6 1,000 @ 7.00 8 800 @ $4.30 12 900 @ 7.50 14 700 @ $4.40 18 400 @ 7.50 22 1,200 @ $4.50 25 1,400 @ 8.00 29 500 @ $4.55 Assuming that perpetual inventory records are kept in dollars, determine the inventory using LIFO. Solution 10-2 100 @ $4.20 = $ 420 200 @ $4.10 = 820 100 @ $4.40 = 440 500 @ $4.55 = 2,275 $3,955 10-3—Analysis of gross profit During 2007, Hill’s Drug Company experienced a significant increase in the rate of gross profit on sales, compared with the rate it has averaged in recent years.
