1.7 question sample assesment 1

I have a problem with 1.7 question
I am trying to calculate inventory holding period but not sure how to calculate inventory. I want to use formula for Inventory turnover : Inventory/Cost of Sales x 365 days . Cost of Sales = 861858 and my answer is 49.265729 based on average inventory so 50 days but correct answer should be 49 according to AAT. I am confused.

    It's asking for the answer to the nearest whole day so 49.26 needs to be rounded down to 49.

    Inventory says average so add up the opening and closing inventory figures then divide by 2.
