# Tim Legler requires an estimate of the cost of goods lost by fire on March 9, writing homework help

Could you assist me with this (1) accounting problem and a breakdown of how the problem is completed by 5pm today 7/17/16?

Tim Legler requires an estimate of the cost of goods
lost by fire on March 9. Merchandise on hand on January 1 was \$38,110.
Purchases since January 1 were \$92,740; freight-in, \$4,400; purchase returns
and allowances, \$2,300. Sales are made at 33 1/3% above cost and totaled
\$131,400 to March 9. Goods costing \$11,010 were left undamaged by the fire;
remaining goods were destroyed.

(a) Compute the cost
of goods destroyed.
