    October 11 inventory = (30 X $110) + (10 X $120) - (9 X $120).

    October 16 inventory = (30 X $110) + (1 X $120) - (1 X $120) - (23 X $110).

    October 21 inventory = (7 X $110) + (15 X $130).

    October 31 inventory = (7 X $110) + (15 X $130) - (8 X $130).

    October 11 inventory = (30 X $110) + (10 X $120) - (9 ...
