Explanation:

First, We calculate the beginning inventory:

5,496 x 1/3 = 1,832 bottles x \$1 February = \$ 1,832

5,495 x 1/3 = 1,832 bottles x \$1.25 March = \$ 2,748

5,495 x 1/3 = 1,832 bottles x \$1.75 April = \$ 3,206

Second, We start subtract the first units from the sales until get zero

sales 4,925

-1,832 february bottles 1,832

3,093

-1,832 march bottles 2,748

-1,261 April bottles x 1.75 = 2,206.75

Third, we add them to get the COGS
