The cumulative effect of an inventory error on total gross profit for the 2 years would be $0. An error in the closing inventory in one year would mean an error in the beginning inventory in the following year. Each year’s gross profit would be wrong, but the two years’ gross profit taken together would have a 0 effect, i.e., the total GP for the two years, even if there had been no error, would still have been $105,000.
