Part B

To calculate Gross profit under FIFO Method:

Unit Sold=150+80=230

Sale Price= 230×250= 57,500

Cost= 19,500+4,500+6500=30500

As we know that the formula of Gross profit is

Gross Profit = Sales – Cgs

Gross profit =57500-30500

Gross Profit =27000
To calculate gross Profit under weighted Average Method:

Units Sold = 150+180 =230

Sale price =230 x 250 = 57500
Cost =21300+12391.2=33691.2

As we know the formula of Gross profit

Gross profit = Sales – Cgs

Gross profit = 57500-33691.2

Gross Profit = 23808.8

Part b

FIFO method will result in Higher Tax because material purchased for the first time would be in stock and the price would be higher than the opening stock.
