During the year, Bristol Sales sold 775 DVDs for $60 each.
a. Compute the amount of ending inventory Bristol would report on the balance sheet, assuming the following cost flow assumptions: (1) FIFO, (2) LIFO, and (3) weighted average.
b. Record the above transactions in general journal form and post to T-accounts using (1) FIFO, (2) LIFO, and (3) weighted average. Use a separate set of journal entries and T-accounts for each method. Assume all transactions are cash transactions.
c. Compute the difference in gross margin between the FIFO and LIFO cost flow assumptions.

  • SLU -

    FIFO
    75 x $17 = $1,275
    450 x $19 = $8,550
    200 x $23 = $4,600
    43 x $29 = $1,247
    Total cost of goods sold $15,672
    Ending inventory $1,653
    [$17,325 - 15,672]

    LIFO
    93 x $29 = $2,697
    200 x $23 = $4,600
    481 x $19 = $9,139
    25 x $17 = $425
    Total cost of goods sold $16,861
    Ending inventory $464
    [$17,325 - $16,861]
