Fardale Corporation provided the following budgeted sales information:


Month                                Sales

January                          $195,000

February                        $210,000

March                            $183,000

April                              $111,000

May                               $252,000

The markup on the cost of products is 50% (meaning that sales are 150% of cost). Fardale desires to have ending inventory of 40% of the following months sales each month. 

All sales are on account. Customers pay 40% of their balances in the month of sale, 50% in the month following sale, and 10% in the second month following sale. The company pays all invoices in the month following purchase and takes advantage of a 4% discount on all amounts due. Cash payments for operating expenses in May will be $70,000; Fardale's cash balance on May 1 was $215,000.


Determine the following:

Expected cash collections during May.

Expected cash disbursements during May.

Expected cash balance on May 31.

Expected accounts receivable balance on May 31.
