Explanation:

Giving the following information:

June 1:

Inventory: 120 units for \$5 = \$600

June 12:

Purchase: 370units for \$6 = \$2,220

June 23:

Purchase: 200 units for \$7 = \$1,400

June 30:

Ending Inventory 230 units

Units sold = 460

Under FIFO method, the first units-in are the first to go out. Therefore, the ending inventory has the value of the last units purchased.

Inventory = 200*7 + 30*6 = \$1,580

COGS = 120*5 + 340*6 = \$2,640

Under LIFO method, the lasts units-in are the first out.

Inventory = 120*5 + 110*6 = \$1,260

COGS = 260*6 + 200*7 = \$2,960

Under the average cost method, we calculate an average buying price and then calculate the ending inventory and cost of goods sold:

Average price = (5 + 6 + 7) / 3 = 6

Inventory = 230*6 = \$1,380

COGS = 460*6 = \$2,760

The highest ending inventory is from FIFO method.
