    I cannot figure out the amounts. Both are less than the base year price, so I cannot use that year's price index, but the base year index of 100 is not getting me the answer. Please help. Thanks.

    (Dollar-Value LIFO) The dollar-value LIFO method was adopted by Enya Corp. on January 1, 2007. Its inventory on that date was $160,000. On December 31, 2007, the inventory at prices existing on that date amounted to $140,000. The price level at January 1, 2007, was 100, and the price level at December 31, 2007, was 112.
