A high inventory turnover ratio mean the company has had unexpectedly strong sales -- a good sign. Or it could mean the firm is not managing its buying as well as it might and is having difficulty in administering its inventory

bint e ahmed ye meri wali thek nahi hay kya is main kya mistake hay please mujy clea ker do ap sub

This info might be helpful for GDB. Cost of good manufactured given ha , opening and closing inventories given hain, Is say hum cost of goods sold nikal sakty jo inventory turn over ratio formula ki requirement ha.

Cost of goods manufactured
+ opening finished goods inventory
-closing finished goods inventory
= cost of goods sold

Total factory cost

+ opening work in process inventory
-closing work in process
= cost of goods manufactured.

yes now u r right cost of good sold aisey hi niklay ga 

can use this formula to find "
Beginning inventory + Purchases - Ending inventory = Cost of goods sold

Cost of Good Manufactured + Opening Inventory – Closing Inventory = Cost of Good Sold

I think that Cost of Goods manufactured will be subtract from closing inventory amount however in case of Cost of Goods Sold there will no plus of minus of closing inventory amount. Please discuss and clear my idea

Opening inventory + cost of goods manufactured - closing inventory = cost of goods sold.
it is right .

please clarify something about the part a and c
