    Hi Charlotte,
    This is one of those questions that you can get bogged down on easily....but here you go!
    Used in production is the 30,000 units produced * .55 kg of material = 16,500 kgs
    Closing inventory is therfore 17,600 - 16500 = 1100 kgs
    Closing inventory is valued at budgeted purchase price which is £ 27,125 / 15.500 kgs which is 1.75 per KG
    so closing inventory = 1100 kgs * 1.75 = £1925
    and the puchase figure is the balance £27,200
