Solution Summary

Your tutorial is in Excel. I showed the unit cost for both years. I also created a traditional (gross profit subtotal) for both methods and a contribution margin format for both methods. This helps to show that you are just re-sorting the amounts and not changing the reported amounts. I created a second set of financial statements for 2011, even though you didn't ask, so you can see how they might be different when you don't sell all that you make.
