Figure 9-2.
Wilmer Company produces two products: OldX and NewX. Budgeted sales for four months are as follows:

OldX NewX
May 10,000 40,000
June 20,000 70,000
July 15,000 80,000
August 30,000 90,000

Wilmer's ending inventory policy is that OldX should have 10% of next month's sales in ending inventory and NewX should have 20% of next month's sales in ending inventory. On May 1, there were 1,000 units of OldX and 9,000 units of NewX.
