The total number of units purchased was 24,000. Since there were 17,000 sold by Dec. 31, 7,000 were sold.

With FIFO (First In, First Out) accounting, the 7000 units sold would be the first 7000 bought, which would be 5000 at 0.89 and 2000 at 0.69 per unit. That cost would be $5830.

Subtract that amount from the total amount spent for inventory and you will have the dollar value of remainign inventory.
