    Opening stock will be 500 @ 2.80 =1,400 ................purchases 3,000+2,160+7,980=13,140.................Closing stock will be1000 @ 4.20 =4,200, as 1000 items left after 3000 sold.

    Sales 3000 @ 6 18,000

    Cost of sales..
    Opening stock 1,400
    Purchases 13,140
    Less Closing stock (4,200)
    Gross Profit 7,660

    That's how id do it..............

    Cost of sales:- opening stock plus purchases less closing stock
    Gross Profit

    Salih the oldest stock form part of the sale order 500,1000,600,900 leaving 1000 items in the stock room at 4.20 each (closing stock), they where the last in, if it was lifo it would be the other way around leaving the oldest stock in the room.........

    When I do fifo and lifo I always picture my self in a stock room actually picking the stock for the sales order, so I know if im picking the oldest stock or the newest stock and what im left with makes,,, its easy then
