I'm working through the practice assessments for AP2 in preparation for my exam tomorrow and I'm struggling with question 1.2 (c)

The question gives the value of purchases and asks for the value of the destroyed inventory after a business fire.

Any help would be greatly appreciated I'm stressing out!

Hi
The question's a continuation of the scenario i.e. carries on from (b) and is concerned with the state of inventory at the end of the finacial year i.e. closing inventory.

Therefore, what you need is to find out the closing inventory and you'll have the figure of destroyed inventory.

Try that and see what you come up with.
