  Exercise 6-3  (20 minutes) 1. Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Beginning inventories (units) 180 150 160 Ending inventories (units). ... 150 160 200 Change in inventories  (units). ............................... (30 )   10       40     Variable costing net  operating income. .............. $292,400 $269,200 $251,800 Add: Fixed manufacturing  overhead cost deferred in  inventory under absorption  costing (10 units × $450  per unit; 40 units × $450  per unit). ............................ 4,500 18,000 Deduct: Fixed  manufacturing overhead  cost released from  inventory under absorption  costing (30 units × $450  per unit). ............................       13,500                                                         Absorption costing net  operating income. .............. $278,900 $273,700 $269,800 2. Because absorption costing net operating income was greater than  variable costing net operating income in Year 4, inventories must have  increased during the year and hence fixed manufacturing overhead was  deferred in inventories. The amount of the deferral is just the difference  between the two net operating incomes or $27,000 = $267,200 –  $240,200.
