The assets of Dallas & Associates consist entirely of current assets and net plant and equipment, and the firm has no excess cash. The firm has total assets of \$2.5 million and net plant and equipment equals \$2.1 million. It has notes payable of \$140,000, long-term debt of \$757,000, and total common equity of \$1.5 million. The firm does have accounts payable and accruals on its balance sheet. The firm only finances with debt and common equity, so it has no preferred stock on its balance sheet.

Write out your answers completely. For example, 25 million should be entered as 25,000,000. Negative values, if any, should be indicated by a minus sign. Round your answers to the nearest dollar, if necessary.

1. What is the amount of accounts payable and accruals on its balance sheet? (Hint: Consider this as a single line item on the firm's balance sheet.)

\$

2. What is the firm's net working capital? If your answer is zero, enter "0".

\$

3. What is the firm's net operating working capital?

\$

4. What is the monetary difference between your answers to part b and c?

\$

What does this difference indicate?

- Current Assets = Total Assets - Net Plant & Equipment

=\$2.5 million - \$2.1 million

= \$0.4 million

- Current Liabilities = Total Assets - Total common equity - Long-term Debts

=\$2.5 million - \$1.5 million - \$0.757 million

= \$0.243 million

a). Accounts Payable and Accruals = Current Liabilities - Notes Payable

= \$243,000 - \$140,000

=\$103,000

b). Net Working Capital = Current Assets - Current Liabilities

= \$400,000 - \$243,000

= \$157,000

c). Net Operating Working Capital = Current Assets - Accounts Payable and Accruals

= \$400,000 - \$103,000

= \$297,000

d). Monetary difference between your answers to part b and c = \$297,000 - \$157000

= \$140,000

The monetary Difference indicates = Notes Payable = \$140,000
