AP2 Practice Assessment 3 Question Help

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!

    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.

    Hi, yes I thought that but I'm still not getting the correct answer and I can't find out how to work out the closing inventory in my notes!

    Opening Inventory + Purchases - Closing inventory = Cost of goods sold.

    At the start of the year, there was £5,850 of inventory. During the year another £46,795 worth was purchased giving a total of £52,645 over the year. £47,925 of this was used as the cost of sales for the year, leaving £4,720 to be destroyed in the fire.

    The value destroyed OR closing inventory is calculated as:
    Opening inventory + purchases - sales
