May 13, 2009 Demerjian 6 Newspaper Route 3. Assuming you collect all the money due from your  customers, how much cash do you have at the end of  the week?  133.20-90.00=43.20

May 13, 2009 Demerjian 8 Newspaper Route On Friday after collections, you have 133.20 in cash.   However, you owe 90.00 to Gagnon, so your net  position is 43.20. On Saturday after paying Gagnon, you are left with  43.20.  So even though you made a payment in cash,  your net financial position is the same—you have  less cash, but you are no longer obligated to make a  cash payment.
May 13, 2009 Demerjian 9 Newspaper Route 5. You keep the route into the fall and it is very successful.  Due to the  completion of a new development near your route, by November,  1985 your total number of customers expands to 80.  Based on this  new number, how much do you collect each week, how much do  you pay, and what is your new net cash? 80*1.85=148.00 collected 80*1.25=100.00 paid 148.00-100.00=48.00 net cash
