On January 1, Easton Company had cash on hand of \$105,000. All of January's \$232,000 sales were on account. December sales of \$214,000 were also all on account. Experience has shown that Easton typically collects 45% of receivables in the month of the sale and the balance the following month. All materials and supplies are purchased on account and Easton has a history of paying for half of these purchases in the month of purchase and half the following month. Such purchases were \$153,000 for December and \$151,000 for January. All other expenses including wages are paid in the month incurred. These amounted to \$42,000 in December and \$76,000 in January. Use this information to determine the projected ending balance of cash on hand for January. (Round answer to the nearest whole dollar)
