Answer: 42.70 is the correct answer but I keep getting 43.42


Here are the steps I am using:


DIO = Days Inventory Outstanding

= Inventory/COGS * 365

= (628,000/4,726,898) *365

= 48.49


DSO = Days Sales Outstanding

= Accounts Receivable/(Credit Sales Per Day/365)

=299,000 / (6,387,700/365)

=299,000 / 17,500.55

=17.09


DPO = Days Payable Outstanding

= Accounts Payable/ (COGS/DAYS)

= 287,000 / (4,726,898/365)

= 287,000 / 12,950.41

= 287,000 / 12,950.41

= 22.16


=DIO + DSO - DPO


= 48.49 + 17.09 - 22.16

= 43.42
