The company's inventory turnover ratio and average days in inventory is 12 times and 30.41 days respectively

Explanation:

The computation of the company's inventory turnover ratio and average days in inventory is shown below:

Inventory turnover ratio = Cost of goods sold : average inventory

where,

Average inventory = (Opening balance of inventory + ending balance of inventory) : 2

= (\$50,000 + \$30,000) : 2

= \$40,000

The formula to compute the cost of goods sold is shown below:

Cost of goods sold = Opening inventory + Purchase - ending inventory

= \$50,000 + \$460,000 - \$30,000

= \$480,000

So, the cost of good sold is \$480,000

Now put these values to the above formula

So, the answer would be equal to

= \$480,000 : \$40,000

= 12 times

And, the Days in inventory equals to

= Total number of days in a year : inventory turnover ratio

= 365 days : 12 times

= 30.41 days

We assume 365 days in a year
