$350

Solution:

Following information is given:

Cost of Goods Sold = $7400

Opening inventory = $3500

Purchase = $8250

Closing stock = $4000

Calculation to find PURCHASE RETURNS:

Cost of Goods Sold = Opening Inventory + Net Purchase + Direct Expenses - Closing Inventory

By substituting the values, we get:

7400 = 3500 + Net Purchase + 0 - (4000)

Net Purchase = 7400 + 4000 - 3500

= $7900

Therefore, Net Purchase = Total Purchase - Purchase Returns

7900 = 8250 - Purchase returns

Purchase Returns = 8250 - 7900

= $350
