Delsing Plumbing Company has beginning inventory of 14,000 units, will sell 50,000 units for the month, and desires to reduce ending inventory to 40 percent of beginning inventory. How many units should Delsing produce?

At the end of January, Higgins Data Systems had an inventory of 600 units, which cost $16 per unit to produce. During February the company produced 850 units at a cost of $19 per unit. If the firm sold 1,100 in February, what was its cost of goods sold (assume LIFO inventory accounting)?

Victoria’s Apparel has forecast credits sales for the fourth quarter of the year as:

September (actual) ……………… $50,000
Fourth Quarter
October …………………………………. $40,000
November ……………………………… $35,000
December ………………………………..$60,000
Experience has shown that 20 percent of sales receipts are collected in the month of sale, 70 percent in the following month, and 10 percent are never collected. Prepare a schedule of cash receipts for Victoria’s Apparel covering the fourth quarter (October through December).
