  1. 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
