When the retail price is 84,700, the cost would 55,902, therefore how much of loss of inventory at cost when retail price is 78,500 = 51,843

Now the journal entry for shrinkage

would be

Losss of inventory (Shrinkage)4,059 -Debit

Inventory account _credit 4,059

Calculation of inventoryloss at cost= 55,902-51,843=4,059
