For the Perpetual WAC, you must calculate the COGS for each sale.
1/7— COGS: 8000 * \$5.50
Units Available for Sale = 8000
Cost/Unit = 44000/8000 = \$5.50
COGS = 4000 * \$5.50 = \$22000
Cost of Ending Inventory after sale: 8000 - 4000 = 4000 * \$5.50 = \$22000
4/6— Cost of Inventory after last sale + Purchases since last sale
4000 * \$5.50 + 2000 * \$12.00 + 6000 * \$14.00 = 130000
Units Available for Sale = 4000 + 2000 + 6000 = 12000
Cost/Unit = 130000/12000 = \$10.83
COGS = 3000 * \$10.83 = \$32490
Units of Ending Inventory after sale = 12000 - 3000 = 9000
Cost of Ending Inventory after Sale = 9000 * \$10.83 = \$97470
9/14— Cost of Inventory after Last Sale + Purchases = 9000 * \$10.83 + 6000 * \$15
Units Available for Sale = 9000 + 6000 = 15000
Cost/Unit = 187470/15000 = \$12.50
COGS = 6000 * \$12.50 = \$75000
Units of Inventory after sale - 15000 - 6000 = 9000
Cost of Inventory after Sale - 9000 * \$12.50 = \$112500
COGS for the year (add up all the totals for COGS for each sale)
\$22000 + \$32470 + \$75000 \$1299470
Cost of Inventory after last sale + Purchases since last sale
\$112500 + 0 = \$112500

When inventory costs are INCREASING:
!
WAC will give higher COGS than FIFO because FIFO takes the oldest units, which happens to
be the cheapest, whereas WAC takes the average of both new and old items.
