QuestionQuestion

Question 1
A company just starting business made the following inventory purchases in February:

February 1 150 units $   150
February 10 200 units 250
February 15 200 units 300
February 28 150 units     480

Total $1,180

All units were sold to customers for cash at $10 per unit.

A physical count of merchandise inventory on February 29 reveals that there are 200 units on hand. Using the periodic inventory method, calculate the value of the ending inventory and cost of goods sold for each of the three methods below:

1. LIFO
2. FIFO
3. Average-cost

When necessary round values to the nearest value in dollars and cents.

Question 2
Using the information from question 1 prepare the journal entry or entries to record the sales and cost of goods sold for the month of February. This will require three separate journal entries, one for each inventory costing method as noted below:
1. LIFO
2. FIFO
3. Average-cost

Question 3
On January 1, 2014 Continental Can Company purchased a new machine at a cost of $15,000 with a scrap value of $3,000 and a useful life of 5 years and 120,000 units. For the year ending December 31, 2014 the machine produced 20,000 units. For the year ending December 31, 2015, the machine produced 25,000 units.
1. Using the three depreciation methods (straight line, units of production, and double decline balancing) calculate the depreciation for the year ending 12/31/2015 and present each of the three journal entries in proper form. (this problem continues on the next page with item #2)
2. On January 1, 2016 the machine is sold for $8,000. Complete the journal entry in proper form based on your calculations under each of the three depreciation methods (see item 1 in this problem). You will present three separate, independent journal entries.
