tehrim bro i m talking about first Q for filling the given table. how to calculate average inventory???
I think so that 200,000 as in the question
inventory over the year would be half of the order size so this will be ending inventory and take the order size as opening inventory
My scenario IDK if its correct or wrong
We can consider this example
ABC Co. has an average collection period of 60 days. Total credit sales for the year were $3,000,000. What is the balance in accounts receivable at year-end?
to answer it - take total sales divided by 365 to get avg day's sales
3,000,000 / 365 = $8219
then take avg days sales and multiply by average collection days
8219 x 60 = $493,150. Closest answer to this is C.
