    a. The computation of the ending inventory is shown below:

    Inventory Quantity Cost NRV LCM Total inventory

    (1) (2) (1 * 2)

    Unit A 14 $38 $40 $38 $532

    Unit B 22 $42 $39 $39 $858

    Unit C 16 $27 $31 $27 $432

    Unit D 19 $18 $17 $17 $323

    Total $2,145

    And total cost = Unit A * cost + Unit A * cost + Unit A * cost + Unit A * cost

    = 14 * $38 + 22 * $42 + 16 * $27 + 19 * $18

    = $532 + $924 + $432 + $342

    = $2,230

    b. The journal entry is shown below:

    Income summary A/c Dr $85 ($2,230 - $2,145)

    To Inventory A/c $85

    (Being inventory is adjusted)
