 Average receivables \$

1). Average Collection Period = 365 / [Net Credit Sales / Average Accounts Receivables]

54 = 365 / [\$92 million / Average Accounts Receivables]

\$92 million / Average Accounts Receivables = 365 / 54

Average Accounts Receivables = \$92,000,000 / 6.76 = \$13,610,958.90

2-a). Total Credit Sales = 7,300 * \$630 = \$4,599,000

Percentage of customers not receiving discounts =100% - 40%= 60%

Average collection period = (40% * 10) + (60% * 90) = 4 + 54 = 58 days

2-b). Receivable Turnover = 365 / Average Collection Period = 365/58 = 6.293

2-c). Average Receivables = Sales / Receivable Turnover = \$4,599,000 / 6.293 = \$730,800
