Answer:

c.530,000 grams

Explanation:

Calculation for How much of the raw material should the company purchase during the year

First step is to prepare the Production Budget

PRODUCTION BUDGET

Budgeted unit sales 170,000

Add desired ending finished goods inventory

32,000

Total 202,000

(170,000+32,000)

Less beginning finished goods inventory (22,000)

Required production in units 180,000

(202,000-22,000)

Second step is to prepare Materials Budget

MATERIALS BUDGET

Raw materials required for production 540,000

(180,000*3 grams)

Add desired ending finished goods inventory

42,000

Total raw materials needed 582,000

(540,000+42,000)

Less beginning finished goods inventory (52,000)

Required material purchases 530,000 grams

(582,000-52,000)

Therefore the amount of the raw material that the company should purchase during the year is $530,000 grams
