asset, (always long-term), and land held for future business site ($18,000) is reported as a long-term investment.

Refer to the correct answer explanation. C. Answer C is correct. The additional detail of accounts receivable indicates that goods out on consignment are included in accounts receivable at their selling price. Consignment goods should be included in inventory at their cost. Since the selling price of the consigned goods is 130% of cost, the cost of the $26,000 of goods at retail is $20,000 ($26,000/130%). Accounts receivable should be reduced to $94,000 ($120,000 – $26,000), and inventory should be increased to $80,000 ($60,000 + $20,000). Therefore, total current assets are $244,000 ($70,000 + $94,000 + $80,000). This answer is incorrect. Refer to the correct answer explanation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
