# Double extension method / LIFO and FIFO

Can you help me get started on this assignment?

A. Wolf Company adopted the dollar-value LIFO method on January 1, 2007, at which time its inventory consisted of 6,000 units of Item A @ \$5.00 each and 3,000 units of Item B @ \$16.00 each. The inventory at December 31, 2007 consisted of 12,000 units of Item A and 7,000 units of Item B. The most recent actual purchases related to these items were as follows:
Quantity
Items Purchase Date Purchased Cost Per Unit
A 12/7/07 2,000 \$ 6.00
A 12/11/07 10,000 6.00
B 12/15/07 7,000 17.00

Using the double-extension method, what is the price % index for 2007 that should be computed by Wolf Company?

B. Patterson Co. has the following data related to an item of inventory:
Inventory, March 1 100 units @ \$4.20
Purchase, March 7 350 units @ \$4.40
Purchase, March 16 70 units @ \$4.50
Inventory, March 31 130 units

What is the value assigned to cost of goods sold if Patterson uses FIFO?

What is the value assigned to ending inventory if Patterson uses LIFO ?
