7/1 7400 * 9.921 = 73415.4
1500 - 7400 = 8100 Units remains in inventory
1/26 Add: 8100 * 9.921 = 80360 (\$)
8200* 10.69 = 87658 (\$)
8100 + 8200 = 16300 Unit in inventory on 1/26
80360+87658=168018 (4)
168018 : 16300 =10.3.8 \$/unit ending 1/26
\$168024 ÷ 16300 = \$10.308/unit
1/31 16300 - 11100 = 5200 units remains on 1/31
5200 * 10.308 = \$53602.
