Answer #1

Correct answer------------$6360

Working

Bad debts recorded (456000 x 1%) $          4,560.00
Add: Allowance for doubtful debts current balance   $          1,800.00
Net balance in allowance account $          6,360.00

Calculation of bad debts using % of sales method does not adjust the balance in allowance account before recording bad debts.
