closing stock = purchases + margin - sales

therefore, closing stock = 100000 + ( 20% on 90000 ) - 90000 = 100000 + 18000 - 90000 = Rs. 28000

sales = 90,000 profit = 20%(sales) = 90,000/5 = 18,000 so cost of goods sold is 72,000 total purchases 1,00,000 so closing stock is 1,00,000 - 72,000 = 28,000

Hi  mahesh the correct answer to this problem is Rs 28000 as posted by Piyush

It is really delightful that a student answered this simple  ques correctly and a CA (Tejas) entered wrong post!!!!

Tejas plz note that profit is 20% of sales AND NOT ON COST.

So if i assume cost to be 100 then profit margin is 25% on cost and/or 20% on sales.

Therefore, if cost 100 sales will be 125 and not 120.

90000*100/125=72000

cl stock=100000-72000= 28000

It was my mistake the answer posted by Piyush and CA Sumit Kansal is correct. This is the reason why I have removed my post.

cost of goods sold = Sales - gross profit = 90000 - 20% on 90000 = 90000 - 18000 = 72000

Hence, closing stock = 100000 - 72000 = 28000

Here is the formula to solve those sort of questions

 

Opening Stock (At Cost)+ Purchases (Obviously At Cost) - Cost of Goods Sold (Sales) = Closing Stock (At Cost) 

 

You can play with above to get whatever missing figure you need and train your mind to get the figures at Cost

90,000 is sales so 90,000/120 x 100 = 75,000 is cost of goods sold .

1,00,000 - 75,000 = 25000 is the actual stock in hand
