    1. The $55k is not included

    2. Don't include the $95k

    3. Include the $15k

    4. Include the $51k

    5. Don't include the $32k

    Starting with the ending inventory of $375k, add $15k ($390k), add $51k ($441k), subtract $32k ($409k).

    I believe that's right. It's been a while since I've done this kind of accounting, but things have an affect on inventory based on when a sale happens. If it's FOB shipping point, the sale happens when it's shipped. If it's FOB destination, it happens upon delivery. If a sale happens on or before Dec 31, it's accounted for in the year end inventory.
