Q1
Desired closing inventory 175
Sales 1950
less opening inventory 150
desired closing inventory is calculated
2275000 units x 5 days /13 weeks x 5 days
the calculation of closing inventory and opening is not clear to me y do we have to multipl 5 days twice?
I don’t know where you found the question, but are you sure you have typed the answer correctly?
What I think maybe they intended to type is this:
2275000 x 5 days / (13 weeks x 5 days)
That would then be correct – to get the demand per day then divide by (13 weeks x 5 days), and then multiply by 5 days to get the inventory.
