Inventory Holding Period

I have the attached question about calculating inventory holding period and i can't get to the answer. The answer is 148 days, my answer is 147. I have calculated the average inventory first.

Thank you for looking.

    Not sure why you are getting 147
    My calculation would be inventory 395200+405600/2=400400
    COS=OP+Purchases-CI = 395200+995250-405600=984850
    Inventory holding period = Inventory/COSx 365=400400/984850*365=148 days
