Now, we have to take that much values of r2 till the cumulative number of weeks reached at 52 or near about 52 such that if we will take one more value for r2 then cumulative number exceeds to 52.

By following the matching principle all of the costs associated with a particular product, not just its wholesale price, is expensed when the item is sold. Requirement 2 - A Generally, the lower of cost or market method is used to value inventory in order to “avoid reporting inventory at an amount greater than the benefits it can provide” (Spiceland, Sepe, & Nelson, 2013, p. 476). According to Spiceland, Sepe, and Nelson (2013) the “change in replacement cost usually is a good indicator of the direction of change in selling price” (p. 477). When the change in replacement cost is negative the LCM method allows companies to apply the conservatism principle. The conservatism principle involves “recognizing expenses and liabilities as soon as possible when there is uncertainty about the outcome, but to only recognize revenues and assets when they are assured of being received” (The conservatism principle).

Current ratios show relative amount of working capital, while quick ratios show the amount of quick assets by current liabilities. “Ratio analysis is an important and powerful technique or method, general, used for financial analysis.
