On December 31, 20X2, Soda purchased inventory for $31,500 and sold it to Pop for $45,000. Pop resold $30,000 of the inventory (i.e., $30,000 of the $45,000 acquired from Soda) during 20X3 and had the remaining balance in inventory at December 31, 20X3.

During 20X3, Soda sold inventory purchased for $56,000 to Pop for $80,000, and Pop resold all but $25,000 of its purchase. On March 10, 20X3, Pop sold inventory purchased for $15,000 to Soda for $30,000. Soda sold all but $7,800 of the inventory prior to December 31, 20X3. Assume Pop uses the fully adjusted equity method, that both companies use straight-line depreciation, and that no property, plant, and equipment has been purchased since the acquisition.
