Gould's Company, which furnishes a single product, use the perpetual inventory method. At the end of each accounting period, a physical inventory is taken to verify the perpetual inventory records. For its most recent accounting period, Gould's records showed beginning inventory of 673 units; goods added to finished goods inventory during the period, 5,700 units; and sales during the period of 5,800 units. Finally, during the period, 80 units in resalable condition were returned by Gould's customers. The unit cost was $15 throughout the period.

a. Assuming Gould's sells this item for $23 per unit, prepare summary journal entries for the period's purchases, sales, and sales returns.

b. Prepare an income statement down to the gross margin line.
