### Corporate Finance II online Quiz

This is regarding Q7 on the Corporate Finance Quiz II.

The Question states :

The average inventory of a manufacturing firm is \$3.5 and the cost of goods sold is \$24 million. Calculate the inventory turnover.
a. 6.85
b.53.22
c. 52.5

Answer given is 53.22

As per my understanding the Inventory Turnover = Cost of Goods Sold / Average Inventory
= 24 / 3.5
= 6.85
Number of days of inventory = 365 / inventory turnover
= 365 / 6.85
= 53.22
The Question here is to calculate Inventory Turnover so the correct answer should have been 6.85.
Could someone clarify this doubt.Thanks

The solution actually calculated for more than asked, but helped you in understanding the concept. You are correct, it actually asked for inventory turnover ratio so the answer should be 6.85 and not 53.22
