a. \$170

Explanation:

For computing the ending inventory first we have to determine the average cost per unit which is shown below:

= (Beginning inventory units * price per unit + purchase inventory units * price per unit + purchase inventory units * price per unit + purchase inventory units * price per unit) : (Beginning inventory units + purchase inventory units + purchase inventory units + purchase inventory units)

= (10 units * \$7 + 15 units * \$9 + 20 units * \$10 + 12 units * \$11) : (10 units + 15 units + 20 units + 12 units)

= (\$70 + \$135 + \$200 + \$132) : (57 units)

= (\$537) : (57 units)

= \$9.42 per unit

Now the ending inventory is

= \$9.42 * 18 units

= \$169.56 i. e \$170
