    • Beg. Finished goods inventory + Cost of Goods Manufactured = Cost of Goods Available for Sale - Ending finished goods inventory = Cost of Goods Sold
  77. Simple Rate of Return
    • does not focus on cash flows rather it focuses on accountng net operating income.
    • = Annual incremental net operating income / Initial investment
    • * simple rate of return is not recommended because it ignores the time vaue of money andthe simple rate can fluctuate from year to year
  78. Traditional Approach Formula
    (costs organized by function and used primarily for external reporting) Sales - Cost of Goods Sold = Gross Margin - Operating Expense = Net Operating Income
  79. Target Profit Analysis Formula
