Anthony Marsala ACC201 Sec. 24 Homework #7 A. Units Sold 8,000 @ 12.00 = \$96,000 7,000 @ 11.00 = \$77,000 Total Revenue = \$173,000 Total Cost of Inventory = \$97,200 1. FIFO (15,000 units sold) 2,000 @ 6.10 = \$12,200 10,000 @ 5.50 = \$55,000 3,000 @ 5.00 = \$15,000 Total COGS = \$82,000 E/I (December 31) \$97,200 - \$82,000 = \$15,200 Gross Profit \$173,000 - \$82,000 = \$91,000 2. LIFO (15,000 units sold) 6,000 @ 5.00 = \$30,000 9,000 @ 5.50 = \$49,500 Total COGS = \$79,500 E/I (December 31) \$97,200 - \$79,500 = \$17,700 Gross Profit \$173,000 - \$79,500 = \$93,500 3.
