Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

here i give you example you can get help from this.

Date Explanation Units Unit Cost Total Cost 
June 1 Inventory 120 $5 $ 600 
12 Purchases 370 6 2,220 
23 Purchases 200 7 1,400 
30 Inventory 230

Compute the cost of the ending inventory and the cost of goods sold under FIFO, LIFO, and average-cost. (Round answers to 0 decimal places, e.g. 125.)


answer:

June 1 Inventory 120 $5 $ 600 
12 Purchases 370 6 2,220 
23 Purchases 200 7 1,400 
= 690 units available for sale 
= $4,220 

FIFO 
Ending Inventory 
(200 x $7) + (30 x $6) = $1,580 
COGS 
4,220 - 1,580 = $2,640 

LIFO 
Ending Inventory 
(120 x $5) + (110 x $6) = $1,260 
COGS 
4,220 - 1,260 = $2,960 

Average Cost 
4,220 / 690 = $6.12 avg. cost per unit 
Ending Inventory 
230 x 6.12 = $1,408 
COGS 
4,220 - 1,408 = $2,812
