gaur What happened to the concept of "AVERAGE" inventory. Shouldn't average inventory be End of year balance = 850 + Begining Inventory balance (850 + 1100(COGS)/2)=1900. Thus the Inventory Turnover Ratio should be 1100/1900 = 0.58. Or for convenience sake we should assume that the balances provided for Balance sheet are averages...
gaur Correction to above: Begining inventory = 850+1100 = 1950 thus average inventory = 850+1950/2 = 1900
novica guar, you need to study some more.
endurance we dont have the ending inventory, thus COGS/Inv = 1100/850 = 1,29
