Answer #1
 Sales(10900*1.17) 12753 Costs(7750*1.17) 9067.5 Taxable income \$3685.5 Taxes(\$3685.5*22%) 810.81 Net income \$2874.69 Less:dividends(\$2874.69*35%) \$1006.1415 Addition to retained earnings \$1868.5485

Total assets would be=\$15350*1.17=\$17959.5

Total equity would be=\$7375+Addition to retained earnings

=(7375+\$1868.5485)=\$9243.5485

Current liabilities would be=\$3225*1.17=\$3773.25

Total liabilities=Current liabilities+Long term debt

=\$3773.25+4750=8523.25

Total assets=Total equity+Total liabilities

Hence external financing needed=\$17959.5-(9243.5485+8523.25)

=\$192.70(Approx).
