Suppose Holt Renfrew, the specialty retailer, had these records for ladies evening gowns during 2017. Beginning inventory (30 @ \$1,000)…………………………………………………………….. \$ 30,000 Purchase in February (25 @ \$1,100)………………………………………………………………. 27,500 Purchase in June (60 @ \$1,200)…………………………………………………………………….. 72,000 Purchase in December (25 @ \$1,300)…………………………………………………………….. 32,500 Goods available……………………………………………………………………………………….. \$162,000 Assume sales of evening gowns totaled 130 units during 2017 and that Holt uses the weighted-average-cost method under the periodic inventory system to account for inventory. The income tax rate is 30%. Requirements 1. Compute Holt s cost of goods sold for evening gowns in 2017. 2. Compute what cost of goods sold would have been if Holt had purchased enough inventory in December-at \$1,300 per evening gown-to keep year-end inventory at the same level it was at the beginning of the year, 30 units?
