​Thornton, Inc. has budgeted sales for the months of September and October at \$306,000 and \$268,000​, respectively. Monthly sales are 80​% credit and 20​% cash. Of the credit​ sales, 50​% are collected in the month of​ sale, and 50​% are collected in the following month. Calculate cash collections for the month of October.

Cash collections for the month of October = 20% of October sales + 50% of credit sales in October + 50% of credit sales in September

Credit sales in October = 80% of October sales = 80% of \$268,000 = \$214,400

Credit sales in September = 80% of September sales = 80% of \$306,000 = \$244,800

20% of October sales = 20% of \$268,000 = \$53,600

50% of credit sales in October = 50% of \$214,400 = \$107,200

50% of credit sales in September realised in October = 50% of \$244,800 = \$122,400

Cash collections for the month of October = 20% of October sales + 50% of credit sales in October + 50% of credit sales in September = \$53,600 + \$107,200 + \$122,400 = \$283,200.
