The terms are FOB shipping point (explained in the?oRequired?? section). Because these goods had not yet arrived, they were excluded from the physical inventory count.;b. Madison delivered samples costing $1,800 to a customer on December 27, 2011, with the understanding that they would be returned to Madison on January 15, 2012. Because these goods were not on hand, they were excluded from the inventory count.;c. On December 31, 2011, goods in transit to customers, with terms FOB shipping point, amounted to $6,500 (expected delivery date January 10, 2012). Because the goods had been shipped, they were excluded from the physical inventory count.;d.
