(a) According to the first-in, first-out method: Cost sold= 27*120 + 54*138 + 49*156 = $18,336
Ending inventory = 14*156 + 36*165 = $8,124
(b) According to the last-in, first-out method: Cost sold = 36*165 + 63*156 + 31*138 = $20,046
Ending inventory = 23*138 + 37*120 = $7,614
(c) According to the average cost method: Average cost = (27*120 + 54*138 + 63*156 + 36*165)/(27 + 54 + 63 + 36) = $147
Cost sold = 130*147 = $19,110
Ending inventory = 50*147 = $7,350
