  1. You only have 17,000 left in the store. The early months are gone - sold.

    So start at Dec and work back until you get to 17,000

    Dec 2,000 @ 1.09 = 2180
    Oct 1,000 @ 1.19 = 1190
    July 4,000@ 0.99 = 3960
    April 2000@ 1.09 = 2180 that is 9000 units
    Feb- 8,000@ 0.69 = 5520 that is 17000 units, the end
