Kashif bro

plz clear this point . 

o/p material which is100,000 lbs nd its cost is 100,000 . y u ignore it in ur calculataion to find material total cost?

yes i agree

@ Shumaila nisar

Opening Material 100000
Add Purchases 440,000 lbs @ Rs. 1.10 per lb ( 440000x1.1 = 484000)
LEss Closing = 80000


100,000 ko ignore nahi kiya ..aap dekh sakti hain...
