Of the initial inventory purchases, $ 25,000 remained in inventory at the end of the period. Leflore depreciated the equipment by 20% straight- line, taking a full year’s depreciation in 20X5. The replacement cost of the inventory, both that sold and that remaining in year- end inventory, had decreased by 10% by the end of the year. The replacement cost of the equipment, however, had increased by 3% over the year.
