d. The collection pattern for accounts receivable is as follows: 70 percent in the month of sale, 20 percent in the first month after the sale, and 10 percent in the second month after the sale. The company expects no bad debts and gives no cash discounts.

m. The ending Finished Goods Inventory should include 5 percent of the next month's needs. This is not true at the beginning of 2018 due to a miscalculation in sales for December. The ending inventory of raw materials should also be 5 percent of the next month's needs.
