Answer: The cost of goods sold = 5881.75

Step-by-step explanation:

Cost of available goods = 75x32.97 + 75x33.78 + 150x35.02 = \$10259.25

Units available = 150 + 75 + 75 = 300

Sold units = 175

Ending inventory = 300-175=125

Value of ending inventory = 125x35.02 = \$4377.5

Cost of goods sold = cost of available goods - value of ending inventory

Cost of goods sold = 10259.25 - 4377.5 = \$5881.75

Cost of goods sold = \$5881.8

Step-by-step explanation:

We know that,

the total number of sold units = 175,

the total number of units received = 150 + 75 + 75 = 300

the total cost of the available goods = (150 * 35.02) + (75 * 33.78) + (75 * 32.97)

= \$10259.25

Ending inventory = 300 - 175 = 125

Worth of the ending inventory = 125 x 35.02 = \$4377.5

So the cost of good sold will be = 10259.25 - 4377.5 = \$5881.8
