Inventory turnover is 3.80

Explanation:

Inventory turnover is computed by dividing Cost of Goods Sold over Average inventory.

First step, compute the average inventory. Average inventory is computed by adding beginning inventory and ending inventory then divide it by 2. Since, ending inventory is in the given data, we will compute the beginning inventory. Accounts that affects the inventory are the Purchases, Cost of Goods sold and the ending inventory. To get beginning inventory, we add ending inventory and cost of goods sold then deduct the purchases.

45,000 + 156,000 = 201,000 - 164,000 = 37,000 (Beginning inventory)

37,000 + 45,000 = 82,000 / 2 = 41,000 (Average inventory)

Then, compute inventory turnover.

Formula : Cost of goods sold / average inventory

156,000 / 41,000 = 3.80
