Cost of sales x 365 to get it in days

But its not what the answer says and im confoooooooosed now.

    Havent looked at the paper, but isnt it stock/COSS x 365? Because stock is bought??

    hi gingervicki

    the question asks for STOCK TURNOVER not STOCK TURNOVER IN DAYS!!!

    the stock turnover formula is cost of sales/ stock . this will give the answer as 6.18 times. which means the that the stock will be soldout 6 times a yr

    the formula u wrote is absolutely right but its for stock turnover IN DAYS

    hope this clears it
