Question

The Motuto Equipment Corporation maintains a general ledger account for each class of inventory, debiting the individual accounts for increases during the period and crediting them for decreases. The transactions that follow are for the Raw Materials inventory account, which is debited for materials purchased and credited for materials requisitioned for use.
1. An invoice for $8,100, terms FOB destination, was received and entered on January 2, 2015. The receiving report shows that the materials were received on December 28, 2014.
2. Materials costing $7,300 were returned to the supplier on December 29, 2014, on FOB shipping point terms. The returns were entered into Motuto's general ledger on December 28 even though the returned items did not arrive at the vendor’s; office until January 6, 2015.
3. Materials costing $28,000, shipped FOB destination, were not entered by December 31, 2014, because they were in a railroad car on the company’s; siding on that date and had not been unloaded.
4. An invoice for $7,500, terms FOB shipping point, was received and entered on December 30, 2014. The receiving report shows that the materials were received on January 4, 2015, and the bill of lading shows that they were shipped on January 2, 2015.
5. Materials costing $19,800 were received on December 30, 2014. No entry was made for them as of that date, because they were ordered with a specified delivery date of no earlier than January 10, 2015.
6. Materials costing $20,000 were received on December 29, 2014. The supplier's warehouse was full and the supplier asked Motuto to hold these items on its behalf and has also insured these items for the period that Motu to will be holding them. The purchase terms indicate that the supplier will purchase these items back from Motuto Equipment in early January 2015 at $20,000 plus storage fees.
7. Materials costing $5,500 were received on December 20, 2014, that are on consignment from Able Company.
