January 1 Beginning inventory 300 units @11.00

March 15 Purchase 150 units @ 10.50

June 10 Purchase 200 units @ 10.75

Sept.22 Purchase 175 units @ 10.00

FIFO-first in, first out

300 @ 11.00

150 @ 10.50

200 @ 10.75

175 @ 10.00

100 @ 12.00

Beginning Inventory Total = 925

Ending Total = 300

Difference = sold = 625

FIFO-first in, first out

Items sold are assumed to be subtracted from the first ones purchased. Go down from the top and subtract from each purchase until you reach the number sold of 625.

300 @ 11.00--sold 300, 0 left

150 @ 10.50--sold 150, 0 left

200 @ 10.75--sold 175, 25 left

175 @ 10.00--sold 0, 175 left

100 @ 12.00--sold 0, 100 left

Calculate value of inventory remaining

25 @ 10.75 = $268.75

175 @ 10.00 = $1750.00

100 @ 12.00 = $1200.00

Total 300 units

268.75 + 1750.00 + 1200.00 = 3218.75

Value of 300 units on hand on Dec.31 = $3219.

Now, you do LIFO-last in, first out

Do the same as I did, except start subtracting from the last purchased until you reach the total sold (bottom to top).
