a.  What is the maximum level of accounts receivable that ALei can carry and have a 45​-day average collection​ period?

The maximum level of accounts receivable will be ​\$ nothing million.  ​(Round to one decimal​ place.)

a) Credit Sales per day = \$153 million/365 = \$419178.08

Accounts receivable = \$419178.08*45 = \$18863013.7 which is the maximum level of accounts receivable that ALei can carry and have a 45​-day average collection​ period

b) Current Accounts receivable = \$153/365*55 = \$23054794.5

Reduction in Accounts receivable required = 23054794.5-18863013.7 = \$4191780.8 which is the reduction required in the level of accounts receivable in order to achieve its goal of 45 ​days
