    Need to find ending inventory, gross profit and net income
    Please help, need directions to finding "ending Inv" ; "Gross profit" ; "net Income(loss)"

    Any formulas I can use to finish the rest of the problems that go with this one? They all vary in filling in the blanks.

    Truly appreciate the help!

    Sales.. . 60,000

    Cost of goods sold
    Merchandise inventory (beginning).. . 6,000
    Total cost of merchandise purchases.. . 36,000

    Merchandise inventory (ending).. .

    Cost of goods sold.. . 34,050
    Gross profit.. .

    Expenses.. . 9,000

    Net income (loss).. .

    I might be wrong, havent' done acct. in a few semseters.

    begin inv + new purchases - cogs = ending inv which should be 7950
    total sales - cogs= gross income ( 25950)
    income- expenses = net income. ( 16950)

    assuming all inventory was sold at constant markup cogs is ~ 56% of sales, therefore markup should be 44%..

    I don't see a loss, I see a net gain.

    hope this was helpful and correct.. lol

    Around and around and around we go, without knowing what information you do have it is difficult to answer your question and it is better to ask a new question than tack your question on an old question
