# Late in the year, Software City began carrying WordCrafter, a new word processing software

Late in the year, Software City began carrying WordCrafter, a new word processing software program. At December 31, Software City’s perpetual inventory records included the following cost layers in its inventory of WordCrafter programs:

Purchase Date Quantity Unit Cost Total Cost
Nov. 14 8 \$ 400 \$ 3,200
Dec. 12 20 310 6,200

Total available for sale at Dec. 31 28 \$ 9,400

a.
At December 31, Software City takes a physical inventory and finds that all 28 units of Word-Crafter are on hand. However, the current replacement cost (wholesale price) of this product is only \$250 per unit.

Prepare the entries to record this write-down of the inventory to the lower-of-cost-or-market at December 31. (Company policy is to charge LCM adjustments of less than \$2,000 to Cost of Goods Sold and larger amounts to a separate loss account.) (Omit the "\$" sign in your response.)
