Accounting help please!?

Worthmore Bank and Trust is considering giving Madsen Company a loan. Before doing so, it decides that further discussions with Madsen’s accountant may be desirable. One area of particular concern is the Inventory account, which has a year-end balance of $280,920. Discussions with the accountant reveal the following.

1. Madsen sold goods costing $56,880 to Allen Company FOB shipping point on December 28. The goods are not expected to reach Allen until January 12. The goods were not included in the physical inventory because they were not in the warehouse.

2. The physical count of the inventory did not include goods costing $86,270 that were shipped to Madsen FOB destination on December 27 and were still in transit at year-end.

3. Madsen received goods costing $27,350 on January 2. The goods were shipped FOB shipping point on December 26 by Lynch Co. The goods were not included in the physical count.

4. Madsen sold goods costing $52,200 to Finet of Canada FOB destination on December 30. The goods were received in Canada on January 8. They were not included in Madsen’s physical inventory.

5. Madsen received goods costing $44,630 on January 2 that were shipped FOB destination on December 29. The shipment was a rush order that was supposed to arrive December 31. This purchase was included in the ending inventory of $280,920.

Determine the correct inventory amount on December 31.

    This is so simple, why don't you research the difference between FOB shipping and destination instead of asking other people to do your homework? That way maybe you'll have a chance of not failing your next exam.
