Homework #3 Solution Question 1 a. Cost of inventory purchased during 2003: $3,600,000 / 5,000 units = $720/unit (don’t include selling commissions in inventory cost) COGS = (5,000 x $720) + (1,000 x $400) = $4,000,000 b. Units available for sale = 5,000 (BI) + 5,000 (purchased) = 10,000 Units in EI = 10,000 - 6,000 (sold) = 4,000 EI = 4,000 x $720 = $2,880,000 Question 2 a. 2004 Index = EI at current prices EI at base year prices 2004 Index = (450 x $3) + (1,200 x $6) = $8,550 (450 x $2) + (1,200 x $5) = $6,900 2004 Index = 1.24 b. Layer added in 2004 = 6,900 - 5,100 = $1,800 EI = 5,100 + (1,800 x 1.24) = $7,332 Question 3 a.12/31/04 LIFO Reserve = 3,420,000 - 3,020,000 = 400,000 Cumulative difference between FIFO and LIFO = 400,000 x .40 = 160,000 $160,000 LESS tax paid since adoption of LIFO b. 2004 COGS Effect = Change in LIFO Reserve during the current year 2004 COGS Effect = 400,000 - 450,000 = (50,000) 2004 tax Income is $50,000 HIGHER because LIFO is used c.
