Explanation:

Given:

Budgeted sales for January = 30,000

Budgeted sales for February = 20,000

Opening inventory in January = 7,500

Desired ending inventory = 20% of sales in February

= 0.2 * 20,000

= 4,000 units

Units required in January = 30,000 + 4,000

= 34,000 units

Units to be produced in January = 34,000 - opening inventory

= 34,000 - 7,500

= 26,500 units

Budgeted sales for February = 20,000

Budgeted sales for March = 40,000

Opening inventory in February is closing inventory of January = 4,000

Desired ending inventory = 20% of sales in March

= 0.2 * 40,000

= 8,000 units

Units required in February = 20,000 + 8,000

= 28,000 units

Units to be produced in February = 28,000 - opening inventory

= 28,000 - 4,000

= 24,000 units
