  • 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
