2017 ending inventory, valued at year-end costs, was \$156,600 and that the relative costindex for this inventory in 2016 was 1.16.Suppose that Badger's 2018 ending inventory, valued at year-end costs, was \$153,400 andthat the relative cost index for this inventory in 2018 was 1.18. What inventory balancewould Badger report on its 12/31/18 balance sheet?\$130,000\$131,964\$153,400None of these answer choices is correct.\$153,400 ÷ 1.18 = \$130,000. This includes the first two layers, the first at \$113,000 and thesecond at \$12,600, plus another at \$4,400 from 2017. No additional layers are added in 2018because the inventory in base year terms actually decreased in 2018. To get the 12/31/18balance, the three layers are multiplied by their relative price indexes of 1.00, 1.10, and 1.16,respectively.
