Amounts as shown below appear on the store’s books before adjustment:

At Cost At Retail

Inventory, January 1, 2014 $34,000 $51,000

Purchases in 2014 $180,600 $310,000

Markups $15,000

Markdowns in 2014 $23,400

Sales in 2014 $296,000

a) The conventional retail method

b) The Last-in, First-out retail method, effecting the change in method as of January 1, 2014. Assume that the cost-to-retail percentage for 2013 was recomputed in accordance with procedures necessary to change the LIFO. This ratio was 54%.
