hello everyone today were going to be looking at cost of goods sold what it means how its used and how its calculated and so cost of goods sold is the cost of inventory which a business sells and so to demonstrate this point well well look at a small example so lets assume that I sell t-shirts and so basically I buy t-shirts from manufacturer for lets say 5 so I have my t-shirts here and I can buy each t-shirt for 5 and I sell them for lets say 8 and so basically what Im doing here is Im making a profit or margin of 3 per t-shirt so lets assume that this is a new business and at the beginning of the month I decide to buy 10 t-shirts which I hope to sell and so basically whats going to end up happening is Im going to buy 10 at basically my cost which is 5 which is going to equal 50 in purchases and lets assume that during the month I sell seven of those t-shirts so so I sell seven shirts at my selling price which is eight dollars which equals fifty six dollars in sales and so how much inventory do I have left over well my ending inventory well I bought 10 I sold seven so my ending inventory is gonna have three t-shirts left and how much I might get value my inventory are well Im getting it at the cost at which I paid for it which is five dollars and so therefore our ending inventory has a value of fifteen dollars in ending inventory Im just going to abbreviate it with this AI here and so lets say in this example I want to try and calculate what my cost of goods sold is well we said earlier that cost of goods sold is the cost I paid for inventory in which I sold so in this example how much inventory did we sell well we sold 70 shirts and so basically what were trying to figure out when we come to calculate our cost of goods sold is how much it cost me to buy those 70 shirts which I already sold well we know we bought each t-shirt at five dollars so basically what our cost of goods sold would be and Im just going to abbreviate it by cogs which is very common its going to be five dollars per shirt times the number of shirts which I sold which was seven and so therefore my cost of goods sold this could be thirty five dollars now that weve calculated our cost of goods sold we can figure out how much money we ended up making during the month so were going to start off with our sales so for ourselves while we sold seven shirts at 8 which gave us total revenue of 56 so our sales give me 56 and then were going to basically subtract our cost of goods sold which is how much it costs us to buy the t-shirts which we sold for 56 and so that amount is what we calculated up here we sold 7 shirts which we bought at 5 each for total cost of goods sold of 35 cogs which leaves us with basically this is called our gross profit which is the difference between our cells and our cost of goods sold and the scale leave us with twenty one dollars and so another way we can calculate cost of goods sold is using a formula which is normally used for companies who adopt a...
