Company policy requires that ending inventories for each month be 25 percent of next month’s sales. At the beginning of January, the inventory of peanut butter is 31,000 jars. Each jar of peanut butter needs two raw materials: 24 ounces of peanuts and one jar. Company policy requires that ending inventories of raw materials for each month be 20 percent of the next month’s production needs. That policy was met on January 1.
