Problem 1: Cost Flow Assumptions for Inventory of the records of Sheldonand Blair1.Inventory computation of each methodA. Average cost: The average cost of goods sold can be calculated on the basis ofdividing the total costs of sales with the total units to sales. Average cost:\$8,620 ÷ 1,300 units =6.63Interpretation: The total sales made by Sheldon and Blair at \$8620 for the total unit canbe sold about 1300, so the average cost of this organisation can be dividing the total sales by theunits of inventory is 6.63.B. FIFO: The inventory to be sold by Sheldon and Blair can be as follows:FIFO:200units @ \$7.10\$1,420 400units @ \$7.00\$2,800 600\$4,220 Interpretation: It is to be interpreted Sheldon and Blair's sales made on the basis of this method200 units were sold at 7.10 which amounted 1,420. The 400 units can be sold for 7.00 whichamounted for 2,800. The computation of total cost of goods sold by Sheldon and Blair as FIFO:Beginning inventoryPurchases (net)3Goods available for saleEnding inventory4Cost of goods sold\$3,000 \$5,620 \$8,620 \$4,220 \$4,400 Interpretation: As per the above calculation it is to be interpreted that the cost of goods sold bythis organisation on the basis of FIFO method is favourable and higher than the other methods.Due the techniques used in this method the first purchased inventory can be sold on its actual1
