3b. Looking at dollar and percentage changes in accounts from one period to the next is using,,,,,,,

Beginning Accounts Receivable = \$100,000
Ending Accounts Receivable = \$150,000
Accounts Receivable Turnover = 6.0

Average Accounts Receivable = (Beginning Accounts Receivable + Ending Accounts Receivable) / 2
Average Accounts Receivable = (\$100,000 + \$150,000) / 2
Average Accounts Receivable = \$125,000

Accounts Receivable Turnover = Credit Sales / Average Accounts Receivable
6.0 = Credit Sales / \$125,000
Credit Sales = \$750,000

Number of days sales in receivable = 365 / Accounts Receivable Turnover
Number of days sales in receivable = 365 / 6.0
Number of days sales in receivable = 60.83 days

Looking at individual assets on a balance sheet as a percentage of the total assets is using vertical analysis.
Looking at dollar and percentage changes in accounts from one period to the next is using horizontal analysis.
