    I have a worksheet that begins with the info given to me in the first attachment. I understood how my teacher got all of the other calculations (average, periodic fifo & lifo, and perpetual fifo) but I do not understand how she got the calculations she got in my second attachment for perpetual lifo.

    1. cgs at LIFO 3/5 sold 5 - so that means used all of the 4 on 3/4 purchase and 1 of the beg inventory =4*14 + 1 * 12 = 68 3/24 sold 2 - so that means last in was 2 * 15 = 30 total cgs = 98 in order to do this you must look at each sold date based on the inventory that you have on hand

    2. value of inventory Beg +8 * 12 sold 1 on 3/5 purchase 3/4 +4* 14 sold on 3/5 purchase 3/18 +11 * 15 sold 2 on 3/24 purchase left with 7 * 12 = 84 9 * 15 = 135 total of 219

    3. gross profit based on sells less cgs (calculated 1 above) sells 5 *25 = 125 2 * 30 = 60 total sales 185 less cgs - 98 GP is 87

    cgs is based on using the last inventory in for the current sale so on 3/10 they sold 5 well she had 8 from beg and 4 from purchase on 3/4 so you use 4 on last sale and 1 from beginning

    I think I need the first part explained with words. Everything else makes sense based on the numbers from cost of goods sold. I mainly don't understand why we use a 2 to multiply 15.

    right and you only need 2 of those so 2 * 15 (cost of those items) you are doing good - trust me deeper you go into accounting harder it gets. Not all about math :)

    the last in on the first sell was 4 @ 14 but you sold 5 so you had to use all 4 @ 14 PLUS 1 from beginning @ 12
